Virtualization SolutionsNew Virtualization Solutions

SiteVision has also been busy upgrading and implementing new and improved virtual server solutions built on the power and stability of the Citrix XenServer Virtual Server Solution. These upgrades provide many features to minimize downtime while offering new enhancements and scalability.

Among features are:

  • Live Migration – Allows us to migrate the virtual server to one of many host servers without shutting down the server. If there is a problem with the current host server, Citrix will automatically move a virtual server to a host without the need to reboot.
  • Load Balancing – This allows us to utilize multiple host servers to spread out the load of the individual Virtual servers and dynamically allocate resources as needed.
  • Network Security – Allows us to assign multiple addresses and VLANS to specific virtual servers for added security
  • Scalability – We can upgrade and add resources to any virtual server as needed at any given time based on usage such as CPU, memory and hard drive Space.

All virtualization services are integrated with a new Dell PowerVault Storage San that includes redundant modules including: logic boards, network Interfaces, RAID hard drives and power supplies.

Combined – customers can anticipate stellar uptime for all web applications and services hosted by SiteVision. Consultations are always free of charge.
