New Server

The A E Yates Group have installed a dual storage area network with redundant Vmware virtual servers and redundant storage backed with an industry leading Cisco switching infrastructure.

The site hardware consists of one physical server and one storage array. Vmware is split into virtual servers which can be used for file shares, exchange email, SQL and other services.

The main benefits of Vmware are:

  • the ablility to create many servers on one piece of server hardware
  • more efficient use of resources
  • ability to move servers from one piece of hardware to another
  • ability to recover data quickly and easily

Vmware allows the replication of the production environment to the Disaster Recovery Site. If compromised the Disaster Recovery Site would take over.
