Virtual Hosting

Taking advantage of virtualization technology, we can host multiple servers (each of which functions as a complete and independent server) on a single physical server. Based on VMware’s vSphere 5, the industry’s most reliable platform for data center virtualization, our service offers the highest levels of availability and responsiveness.

Select from our pre-configured packages designed to meet the requirements of different-sized workloads or order exactly the resources needed for a customized instance. Customers are able to operate and maintain their own virtual machine, or can subscribe to one of the System Administration Services provided by the Data Center Team.

Our service addresses the majority of server hosting requirements. When your application requirements or non-standard configurations require the use of physical hardware, consider our Physical Server Hosting service.

Set up a consultation with ITS to discuss the options that best fit your needs.
