VMware Virtualization Solutions
Synergy IT Solutions was one of the few IT companies in the GTA to start Implementing Server Virtualization for Clients across the Greater Toronto Area. Your Trusted VMware Consultant Toronto.
Synergy IT As VMware Professional Partner
Being one of the original VMware partners in the Toronto area, we have deployed several VMware Server Consolidation and Virtualization solutions for our customers. Being a professional partner gives us the edge to work closely with VMware to bring our customers top solutions and expertise. VMware selected us, a professional solution partner, due to our excellent track record of designing, delivering and managing a wide variety of visualization solutions to our Canadian customers
Virtualization dramatically improves the efficiency and availability of resources and applications in your organization. Given the present structure in most companies, Internal resources are underutilized under the old model i.e. one server, one application. Managing the servers under these models becomes a cumbersome job for the IT admins. This results in a loss of productivity as opposed to innovations. An automated datacenter, built on a VMware virtualization platform, lets you respond to market dynamics faster and more effectively. VMware vSphere delivers resources, applications, and even servers; when and where they are needed. VMware customers typically save 50-70% on overall IT costs by consolidating their resource pools and delivering highly available machines with VMware vSphere.

Virtualization with VMware
This is a manufacturing company who had MS SQL, MS Exchange, file servers and Citrix Metaframe running on their servers. All these servers were running on standalone physical servers. They were taking data and system state backups with Veritas backup exec and periodic images of the servers using Acronis software. But their main concern was the time that it will take to restore these images and data, in the event of a physical server failure. Down time incurred during the recovery period could not be afforded because of the impact that it can cause on the critical business functions. Our solution was to virtualise the physical servers with an iSCSI SAN.
The solution achieved the following goals
1. In the event of a host server hardware failure the ability to restart any of the virtual servers on another virtualized host within ten minutes.
2. In the event of a software(OS or APPS) corruption in any of the virtualized servers, they can roll back to the latest working copy of the VM and be back up within few minutes.
3. Since data volumes are stored on the SAN independent of any of the Virtual Machines(VM) they can be attached to any running VM when required.
VMware ESX/ESXi 4.0 VMware ESX/ESXi 4.0, part of vSphere 4, extends VMware’s legacy of highly reliable, highly scalable virtualization by delivering even greater levels of robustness, security, and performance. Already, over 85% of ESX/ESXi deployments are in production environments – an example of how companies, both large and small, trust VMware for their business critical workloads.
New vSphere Essentials Editions The robust, proven capabilities of VMware vSphere are now also available in two cost-effective packages designed for small offices. vSphere Essentials Edition enables server consolidation and centralized provisioning, management, and patching for immediate savings on hardware and operational costs. It also includes integrated physical-to-virtual conversion capabilities and the VMware VMsafe security APIs for third-party security products that deliver even better security than available on physical servers.
vSphere Performance Improvements Better performance and utilization lead to higher virtual machine consolidation ratios, which lead to lower capital expenditure costs.
New VMware Fault Tolerance (FT) VMware FT ensures that protected applications are always available, even in the event of hardware failure – your applications may never have to go down again.
New VMware vNetwork Distributed Switch With VMware vNetwork Distributed Switch, IT can manage one virtual switch that spans an entire cluster instead of managing a separate virtual switch for each host – a new, time-saving way to manage virtual networks.
New VMware vShield Zones A key benefit of virtualization is the ability to break down silos within the datacenter.
