VMware Assessment

Optimise the security, stability, performance and compliance of your VMware infrastructure

vmware consultancy

Rising energy costs and new energy efficiency directives means that enabling enhanced data centre sustainability is now a top goal for enterprises everywhere.

VMware is a highly adaptable cloud management platform that enables organisations to transform their datacentres and rapidly meet changing work needs. However, shortfall in its configuration, support or the infrastructure it resides on makes it a prime candidate for optimisation actions that will deliver improvements in energy efficiency.

Ensuring your VMware environments are in tip top condition and fully compliant is a time consuming and complex proposition. One that demands IT teams regularly undertake specialist checks and assessments. All too often, however, IT teams lack the time, resources, skills or know-how to ensure VMware environments are appropriately maintained and optimised.

Our VMware assessment and operational analysis service gives you a comprehensive review of your VMware environments, together with recommendations on where to improve and how.
