Server Virtualization in MD:

Our engineering team guides you through the process of leveraging business virtualization technology to ensure you avoid configuration pitfalls that may increase the impact of a single server failure. At a high level, virtualization offers faster and more cost effective deployment of new applications and basic redundancy. Used to its fullest capacity, server virtualization provides automated failover and fault tolerance, significant scalability, simplified backups, faster recovery, performance optimization, and multi-site disaster recovery capabilities. With extensive expertise in hardware virtualization solutions from Microsoft and VMware, and software virtualization technologies like Parallels and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions, we have the toolbox to build customized virtual platforms for Maryland businesses and organizations.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Solutions (VDI):

Organizations and companies leverage all of the same great benefits and cost savings involved with server virtualization software applied to end-user workstations and desktops in the form of a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). A VDI infrastructure centralizes management of all user profiles and configurations (installed applications, access controls, and various settings) for ease of use. Each individual’s desktop looks and feels exactly like running a standalone tower PC or laptop, and is remotely accessible using cost effective and modern devices like thin clients or tablets. Users gain the benefit of direct access to a company’s highly reliable and stable virtual platform, the added benefit of a personalized desktop experience, and freedom to work offsite without the costs of deploying or maintaining PCs. VDI software solutions also facilitate centralized or remote diagnostics support, for rapid, effective help desk and applications assistance.

Big Data / Storage Solutions:

The science of storage selection is now a technical art form as the pervasiveness of electronic transactions increases exponentially new creative opportunities and needs arise. The massive amounts of data generated and stored by the modern systems supporting these transactions offer incredible insights into the businesses that can access, analyze, and articulate the patterns and metrics that data represents.  This promise of transactional insight presents new levels of competitive advantage to the organizations that can harvest it, but first you must store it, process it, and be able to store the output. Spending on larger, faster systems and storage devices is not the answer to alleviate data burdens on aging IT infrastructures. We determine the true I/O capacity and performance you need, application by critical application, platform by platform, with an eye for reliability, scalability, manageability, and your tolerance for risk. Many new storage technologies offer varied price and performance points, and support blending high, mid, and near-line performing capabilities within a single device that can cost effectively grow with the needs of your Maryland business.

Integration, Migration, & Support Services:

Swift Systems specializes in providing risk mitigating assessments and performing physical-to-virtual (P2V) and virtual-to-virtual (V2V) migrations for Maryland businesses with very little operational impact and no loss of functionality or productivity. Our engineers have extensive knowledge of virtualization software from the likes of Veeam, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Parallels, and Citrix XenServer.
