Compute provide virtual infrastructure solutions for all environments. Our deep-rooted experience in virtualisation and partnerships with virtualisation providers enable us to offer tailor-made solutions for each customer.
What is Virtualization?
Virtualization is a software technology that allows you to maximize the resources of a physical computer by running applications as virtualized workloads. Numerous applications and operating systems can run on one physical machine, resulting in significant cost savings on hardware, cooling and energy consumption. Compute have key areas of focus for virtualization
• Desktop Virtualization
• Server Virtualization
• Storage Virtualization
• Network Virtualization
Key differentiator at Compute is our expertise in both storage and virtualization, along with our ability to understand and bring these two disciplines together. Neither of these areas work effectively in isolation and Compute not only has the unparalleled knowledge of each environment, but understands how these infrastructures are interlinked.

Security planning and compliance
Every business should have a designed and carefully thought out security strategy that includes both proactive and reactive plans. The proactive or “pre-attack” strategy should include steps that help to minimize vulnerabilities and risk. The reactive strategy or “post-attack” strategy should include the proper steps in assessing the damage caused by the attack and steps in recovering the systems or network as soon as possible.
Compute’s IT consultants can help you perform a full risk assessment and define network security strategy to help minimise or eliminate the possibilities of attacks and threats.
