Virtualized Filter for Reduced Costs
Today there is a need to provide increased computer access while operating within the constraints of a tight, and sometimes, dwindling technology budget. BASCOM recognizes this challenge and is now delivering virtualized filter solutions. When a single server is dedicated to a specific application, hardware costs are increased since the appliance is often underutilized.
Virtualization, or providing security and content filtering on a virtual machine, maximizes hardware by consolidating multiple applications on a single server or cluster. Since virtual appliances enable multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single machine, they reduce capital expenses, electricity costs, and administration.
VM Filter Appliances for Simplicity and Savings
A virtual appliance eases the burdens on System Administrators by streamlining solutions, integration, and support. Schools can now standardize on hardware platforms or with existing virtual environments such as VMware®, VirtualBox, or MicroSoft Hyper-V optimized solutions. As their needs grow, the hardware can easily be scaled to allocate additional computer resources to the virtual machine cluster. VM filter appliances enable schools to gain significant savings through economies-of-scale, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.
For easy migration, a System Administrator can easily move a snapshot of a virtual environment to a new server infrastructure. In addition to simplifying deployment and operation while also delivering greater performance and economic efficiency, backup and disaster recovery is also much quicker.
