Virtual Servers

“Begin your Journey to the Cloud”

Time for a hardware refresh? Don’t want to dedicate the time or resources to virtualize in­house, yet desire the many benefits of virtualization? Watch Communications VMware vSphere Enterprise Plus cluster offers the ultimate in availability, scalability, and flexibility. Watch Communications Virtual Servers offer both capital expense advantages and operation expense advantages. Whether you are considering Hosted Virtual Servers for their uptime, cost savings or convenience, our professionals will guide you through the simple process of getting started.

Transform your Business with Virtualization

Virtualization dramatically improves the efficiency and availability of data and applications in your organization. Internal resources are underutilized under the old “one server, one application” model and IT admins are forced to spend too much time managing servers rather than innovating. Our Virtual Servers let you respond to operational dynamics faster and more efficiently than ever before.

Lower IT Costs

Flexibility & Scalability

Virtual Servers from Watch Communications effectively addresses the capital issues that affect both small to large businesses by offering IT resources only when your business needs them. This means staying nimble as your business grows.

Ease of Use & Implementation

Microsoft License Rental

Watch Communications alleviates that burden by offering optional rental packages for most popular Microsoft software. Whether you simply need Microsoft Server and Office, or more specialized applications such as Exchange or SQL Server, we offer low monthly payments to reduce your capital outlay while always keeping you up to date with the latest versions.

Security
