People are becoming more and more aware of the implications we are having on the planet. At the start of the year, Davos 2020 was held and more people were discussing ways we can improve our environment. One of the important things highlighted was technology.
As the use of technology has grown, so has its impact on the environment. Almost everything has a techno-logic alternative, and huge advancements are being made. However, we are now becoming more conscious of the damage we are doing to the planet.
One of the issues is, people don’t realise how much energy is actually being used. If you think about it, almost everyone has a mobile phone, computer, laptop or a tablet, if not all of them. Then if you look at office environments, nearly every employee will have a desktop computer which they use all day. Add this to all the emails which are sent, web searches being carried out plus general use of the computer and you’re using up a lot of electricity on a day to day basis.
Many people may struggle to see how this can be prevented but there are a number of changes which your organisation can implement to help. Here at Tecnica, we work with environmentally friendly high end technology. Consolidate this with our highly skilled professionals who are confident in saying we can not only create a greener technology environment for your business but also increase agility and performance while reducing expenditure. Tecnica have successfully designed and implemented numerous virtualization solutions, transforming business processes, resulting in a greener business environment.
At Tecnica, we specialise in desktop, storage, and server virtualization.
There are several options when it comes to choosing virtualization, and with the help of our technical knowledge and expertise we can provide impartial advice as well as vendor agnostic solutions which fit your business requirements.
Desktop virtualization is running desktop operating systems and applications inside virtual machines that reside on servers in the data centre. There are multiple benefits to desktop virtualization, you can have multiple desktops on one single server which makes it easier for admins to manage each desktop. It also means that should a device get lost or stolen, your security will not be compromised as there is no data stored on the actual device.
With server virtualization, multiple ‘virtual servers’ are run on a single or reduced number of physical machines, dramatically reducing the number of physical servers in an organisation. Each virtual server has its own operating system where applications are run as normal and users have access via the network as usual.
Storage virtualization has information from multiple storage devices stored in one single storage server. This makes it easier to recover stored data as it will be in one centralised location.
How does this help the environment? Quite simply, less physical technological items that are used will reduce the amount of energy required which, in turn, will create less pollution. It may not seem like a lot but if every organisation implemented virtualization then it would create a huge positive effect on the environment. As well as this, it would bring a positive impact on the organisation via reduction in costs, downtime, physical hardware while gaining an increase in agility and speed.
