Hosted Virtual Server / Virtual Server Outsourcing
Are you considering buying a new file server for your office? Instead of investing in noisy server hardware that eats up office space and rus too hot during the summer, why not rent an externally hosted virtual server from GEOTEK? This solution has several advantages:

- For some decentralized workgroups this solution may even obviate the need for a central office.
- Optimal availability due to air-conditioned and dust free data centre environment.
- Lower IT management cost because applications need no longer be installed on each PC.
- Rock stable VMWare technology allows for easy portability of software images.

GEOTEK's HVS Server product has won the German Innovations Price ITK in the IT oursourcing category. The virtual HVS infrastructure will be totally transparent to your users. In fact, they will hardly notice any difference from working locally on their PCs. In addition, there is no IT expertise at all needed on your part for setting up this Hosted Virtual Server environment. The only thing you need to do is provide appropriate internet access through a provider of your choice - everything else will be set up by us remotely. We also offer service contracts at fixed prices that guarantee enterprise grade availability of your IT environment.
If you want to replace your existing server, we can also help to migrate the data, including Microsoft Exchange and Groupwise email accounts or SQL databases.
The award winning GEOTEK Virtual Server technology is available in three different forms: as Hosted Virtual Server for end users including maintenance support contracts down to each PC, as Hosted VMware Server for administrators or OEMs, where you are responsible for guest OS administration, or as Hosted Terminal Server, where you rent your Microsoft Office, Exchange and Terminal Server licenses on a monthly basis from us (Microsoft SPLA licensing). Additional technical information may be found in our Hosted Virtual Server FAQ.
