A Virtualised Data Centre is a software-based representation of a physical Data Centre, offering a variety of cloud infrastructure elements like servers, storage clusters, and networking components to businesses.
Virtual Data Centre (VDC) offers several advantages to businesses of all sizes. Lets look at the 4 pillars you need for a winning solution.
A Virtual Data Centre (VDC) is a collection of cloud resources designed to empower businesses with robust computing capabilities. By adopting a VDC, companies can forego the necessity of establishing and managing an on-premises Data Centre. A software-based Data Centre provides identical functionalities as its physical counterpart, ensuring seamless operations and enhanced performance.
|Data Centre||Data Centre||Virtual Data Centre|
|High upfront expenses arise from the need for companies to purchase hardware and rent physical space. Additionally, they face significant costs related to electricity, cooling, and ongoing maintenance||Costs||Pay-as-you-use payment model. Very cost effective. No initial investment necessary|
|Capital expenditure companies need to buy and maintain their ownphysical assets||Investment type||Operating expenses (OpEx) the business only pays ongoing costs|
|Designing and building a data center can take months. Each new piece of hardware requires purchasing, configuring, and racking||Setup speed||Building a new VDC is typically a matter of days. Adding new VMs and capabilities requires minutes.|
|Physical servers equipped with pre-defined CPUs, memory, and storage, which leads to restricted upgrade possibilities and time-intensive server management tasks.||Servers||Resize and deploy as demands increase or decrese|
|Plan for any switch ports, routers, cabling||Networking||Software-defined networks (SDN) and virtual routers to scale your network|
|Difficult to manage a centralised security management system, Physical access and times can be a disruption||Security||Centralised security management system|
|Migration is a slow, time consuming and expensive and prone to a wide range of possible issues||Migration||Easily migrate data between hardware platforms|
|Difficult to maintain and scale, usually results in adding more hardware and complexity||Scalability||Scale as you need or as your business requires with ease|
|Power infrastructure is expensive||Power||Power is not an issue|
|Expensive to hire IT staff to maintain, patch and backup critical infrastructure||Backups & Management||Management through a single interface, Backup and Professional Services available|
