Akibia says programme will reduce costs in the datacentre

Akibia, an independent IT services provider, has unveiled Virtualisation Services, a programme designed to enable Fortune 500 firms maximize server utilisation and reduce costs in the datacentre.

In essence, Virtualization Services will be marketed as enabling companies to analyse, assess, design, implement and support their virtualised infrastructure environment.  As businesses face more complexity and heterogeneity in the datacentre, Akibia says that they are looking for ways to simplify, manage, optimize and obtain the most value from their infrastructure.

Akibia boasts 20 years experience supporting mission-critical datacentres and in-depth knowledge of both proprietary and open source virtualisation technologies, including VMware, Virtual Iron, Xen and
Microsoft Virtual Server. The company assures end users that it will analyse and assess objectively users' current IT environment and then deploy the optimal virtualisation solution to meet their strategic goals.

Akibia says it takes an holistic view of the datacentre, supporting the entire virtualisation technology life cycle from planning and assessments to design and implementation as well as ongoing management,
training and support.

"Our service philosophy is premised on enabling and empowering the customer with a solution that fits their unique needs," asserts Tom Willson, CEO of Akibia. "We leverage our years of experience supporting mission-critical, multi-vendor, multi-platform datacentres and industry best practices to help our customers achieve considerable ROI by virtualising their complex, heterogeneous environments."
