Solutions for Business Needs Virtualization
Optimizing resources and performance for simplicity and savings.
Whether in an enterprise, distributed or a service provider environment, a "one-application-per-server" model can underutilize hardware resources and overburden server administrators. Organizations can overcome these limitations by employing virtualization to consolidate multiple virtual appliances onto a single physical server or a server cluster. Additionally, virtualization enables organizations to allocate additional computing resources to the virtual machine cluster as required.
Dell SonicWALL® Global Management System (GMS®) Virtual Appliances, Analyzer Virtual Appliances and Dell SonicWALL Email Security Virtual Appliances are the first in the series of Dell SonicWALL Virtual Appliances to deliver greater performance and economic efficiency. Dell SonicWALL Virtual Appliances include a software appliance that has already been pre-installed and pre-configured for VMware environments, and allow the secure and easy deployment of Email Security within a virtual environment.
Reducing costs and complexity.
Virtual Appliances reduce complexity by simplifying solution selection, integration and ongoing support. They also ease migration and reduce deployment costs by allowing administrators to move a snapshot of a virtual environment to new physical server infrastructure. Virtual Appliances consolidate resources by running multiple operating systems and applications on a single computer, thereby reducing associated capital expenditures, administrative overhead and power consumption. The pre-configured virtual machine has no professional service fees and no hidden costs.
Hardened appliance OS.
The performance-optimized architecture of Virtual Appliances activates only necessary processes, and the hardened SonicLinux OS prevents users from tampering with its underlying integrity.
Virtualization for organizations of all sizes.
Leading the industry in providing affordable virtualized security services to organizations of all sizes, Virtual Appliance solutions can operate as an efficient and affordable cloud-based service or as a virtual environment on the private LAN. At the same time, Virtual Appliances enable large distributed enterprises to gain significant savings through economies-of-scale, for lower total cost of ownership.
Ideal for MSPs.
Managed service providers (MSPs) can deploy Virtual Appliances at their network operations center to offer private cloud offerings to their customers, increasing efficiency and profitability and easily spinning off new deployments with minimal incremental investment. As such, Virtual Appliances enable MSPs to increase their competitive edge and pass along the cost benefits of virtualization to their small business customers. An ideal delivery system for resellers, Virtual Appliances can help avoid hardware customs and duties, and streamline “try before you buy.”
