All businesses need technology to operate efficiently and to compete effectively. But as reliance on IT grows, the resources to support an increasingly complex IT environment may not. In many small and mid-size businesses, IT resources are scarce, and can be quickly overwhelmed with the day-to-day responsibilities of keeping the IT infrastructure that the business depends on up and running.
If you fall behind in keeping up with things such as backups, patches and security, the odds are that you’ll face an IT outage that will negatively impact your business. For instance, if your e-mail server, customer relationship management system, financial application or network goes down unexpectedly, you face substantial productivity and revenue losses as a result.

SMSO provides full support for server virtualization, and server consolidation using VMware Technology (VSphere, ESX, Server) or Microsoft Hyper-V. Server Virtualization is becoming one of the most widely used technologies in small to medium business environments. One of the biggest reasons for the rapid growth in Virtualization is that it allows a business owner to move multiple physical servers to a single server without any negative effects. Having multiple servers on a single physical server makes it affordable to move your server off-site to a Datacenter (Colocation) which in the past was only available to very large companies due the high costs of rack space when multiple large servers had to be used. Administration and server management costs are reduced and made easier via a single console that is used to control all virtual servers.
