With our strategic partnerships with Microsoft, VMWare, Cisco & HP, Sherr Technologies can provide virtual servers platform from our low energy, ultra efficient infrastructure which can be dedicated for your business requirement.
Historically, some IT products and solutions would not fit on traditional servers and required custom builds of Linux, Unix or Windows which meant these vendors would produce a hardware appliance which was a custom built box specifically designed for purpose. Such appliances would provide Content Management solutions, CRM solutions, Threat Protection and Load balancing solutions
With the advent of virtualisation and the rapid adoption of such technologies, these old fashioned custom built appliances could now be converted into a Virtual Appliance. Virtual Appliances are the same as their Hardware Appliance predecessors, just without the metal wrapper.
Virtual Appliances allows the vendor to deliver their product in a simple and standardised format which can be quickly installed and activated on virtualisation platforms such as Microsoft Hyper-V or VMWare making them ready to use, easy to upgrade, cheaper and quicker to supply to the client. A full list of VMWare appliances can be found in the VMWare Marketplace and vendors are equally delivering Hyper-V ready Virtual Appliances.
Now you have this lovely new spangly Virtual Appliance, but where to put it?
This is where Sherr Technologies come in. We can provide an empty Virtual server – like an empty box – configured to your Virtual Appliance specifications, ready for you to fill with your Virtual Appliance of choice.
Our Virtual Server Platform solution provides a ‘ready to use’ facility that can be configured to meet your requirements, monitored 24x7 by our team and can be scaled as required. This means an organisation does not need to purchase, maintain and support complex hypervisor solutions such as VMWare & Hyper-V which require expensive IT equipment and specialist IT skills.
