No time for virtualization? You’re missing the point!

Using DRaaS to Resolve Ransomware

Virtualization is a no-brainer, right? Greater stability, better security, improved efficiency across your IT infrastructure. But surely setting up a virtualization layer will take time – time you just don’t have when there are already more urgent priorities fighting for your attention every day?

Catch 22

Of course, this is to miss the point. It is precisely because competing priorities are consuming your available time and resources that tells you your business needs virtualization.

This raises a dilemma. Virtualization will save you time in the long run, but until it is in place you don’t have the free time to install it. But it might not be such a big problem.

What’s already in place?

You likely have some form of automation working for you right now.  You may have taken steps to consolidate hardware and develop virtual desktop and software stacks.  Each of these would have been achieved by tackling one thing at a time, and each is a step towards your goal of a complete virtualization system.

So the first step would be to carry out an IT audit and determine exactly what needs to be done and what is already in place. From there, the task looks far simpler when you can break it down into smaller projects and plan a timeline to action them.

Plan your project in steps over time

Once you have a list of steps to be completed, the project can be planned with realistic timeframes attached to each. This might mean that your final goal is months away, but as each step is completed you know the business is improving and moving closer to a more virtualized and efficient future – far better than never getting started on improving your situation.

Remove doubt by getting the right information

Kaseya regularly helps medium and large businesses identify how they can dramatically improve their software environments. Getting the right advice and information can dispel doubts and clarify exactly how to find the time for virtualisation.
