Are you tired of constantly updating and maintaining your physical servers? Are you looking for a more efficient way to manage your IT infrastructure? Have a look at virtualization. Nfina’s virtualized infrastructure allows organizations to optimize their resources, increase flexibility, and reduce costs.  

What is Virtualization?

Virtualization is the process of creating a virtual version of something, such as an operating system, server, or storage device. It allows multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical machine simultaneously. 

The main goal of implementing a virtualized infrastructure is to make effective use of resources by dividing them into multiple isolated environments. This means that different applications can be installed and run in separate virtual machines (VMs) without interfering with each other. Virtualization enables organizations to maximize their IT infrastructure while minimizing costs and reducing downtime. By consolidating multiple servers onto one physical machine, businesses can save on energy bills and assign resources.  

In addition to cost savings, a virtual infrastructure also provides increased flexibility in managing IT resources. With the ability to scale up or down depending on demand, organizations can quickly adapt to changing requirements without having to purchase additional hardware. Virtualization offers numerous benefits for businesses looking for more efficient ways to manage their IT infrastructure. 

Benefits of having a Virtualized Infrastructure

Reduced Costs | With Nfina’s virtualized infrastructure, businesses can save money on hardware costs as they don’t need to purchase and maintain physical servers for each application or workload.

Disaster Recovery Capabilities | Nfina’s virtualized infrastructure helps with disaster recovery efforts by allowing organizations to create backups and snapshots easily without needing additional hardware resources. In case of any downtime or disaster event, these backups can be quickly restored onto another server ensuring minimal business disruption.

Recent advances in immutable snapshot technology have enabled companies like Nfina offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to offer DRaaS to mid-market enterprises at an affordable price. The NIST Cyber-Security Standard is successfully implemented by Nfina’s implementation of DR. 

Challenges of Implementing a Virtualized Infrastructure – The Nfina Advantage

Virtualization offers numerous benefits for businesses, but it also comes with its own set of challenges. One significant challenge that companies face when adopting virtualized infrastructure is the complexity of managing multiple VMs. As the number of VMs grows, so does the need for effective management tools and processes to ensure optimal performance.  

Nfina Advantage → Our servers are Intel® Xeon® powered, providing the top levels of efficiency, security, performance and scalability With 3rd generation Intel® processors, the number of VMs able to be supported and scale are rather high 

Another challenge is ensuring security within a virtualized environment. While each VM runs on its own isolated space, they share underlying resources such as memory and storage. This means a security breach in one VM could potentially compromise other VMs running on the same host machine. 

Nfina Advantage → Nfina’s data protection services support a zero-trust approach to security. Our solutions allow for fast, frequent backups in less time, and they don’t consume your bandwidth. The Nfina-Store™ storage architecture uses Copy-on-Write technology, which tracks changes using immutable snapshots. With this architecture, backups are more frequent and more restore points are available, which requires less compute and storage than traditional image backups. With Nfina-Store™, companies of any size can architect virtualized storage environments using iSCSI, Fibre Channel (FC), NFS, SMB (CIFS) protocols. 


Remember that choosing the right type of virtual infrastructure or virtual machine will depend on your specific needs and goals. Make sure to consult with Nfina, who can guide you through every step of this process and help ensure successful implementation at a lower cost of ownership, and 24/7 US-based customer service. Our team will quickly answer queries and address any issues to keep your equipment running at peak productivity. If you need faster on-site assistance, gold and platinum service options can be provided on the next business day or four-hour response times.
