X-change on the benefits of virtualisation and cloud architecture to enterprise networks - Presentations and pictures


“Server virtualisation, application consolidation/rationalisation will be at the core of all data network initiatives [Gartner]”. “The data centre is the centralised hub for IT services, supporting mission-critical applications, and real-time services, mobility…” [Burton Group].

BELTUG users have already witnessed how consolidation drives costs down:

  • High speed WAN links become more affordable;
  • Centralising ICT operations reduces costs.

A strong need for an application-fluent & scalable network is clear from studies and surveys. Such a network must address the requirements of maintaining business continuity (BCP) and meeting service-level agreements (SLA), two of the main drivers.
