Virtualization and Cloud Infrastructure
Maximize resources with Virtualization: Our enterprise architecture team provides the expertise and resources needed to implement a virtual infrastructure for your business, including server and desktop virtualization solutions.
What is Virtualization?
In essence, virtualization is a way to deliver hardware through the use of software. For example, implementing a virtualized server environment can allow a business to add server capacity without buying, installing and maintaining additional physical machines. Deployment of virtualized machines can happen quickly and efficiently since there is no additional hardware involved. Virtualization also serves to maximize resources and minimize waste capacity by creating a flexible pool of servers and storage.
So what are the benefits of Virtualization?
Reduces capital expenditures of buying new hardware/servers
Reduces deployment time & managing physical servers
Reduces costs associated with powering & cooling data-centre
Saves physical storage space & maintenance
Zero hardware waste & disposals
Optimizes application availability & performance
Simplifies business continuity & disaster recovery

WMK’s Propriety Cloud Security
WMK’s cloud security priority products will protect your data, applications and infrastructures involved in cloud computing. Many aspects of security for cloud environments (whether it’s a public, private, or hybrid cloud) are the same as for any on-premise IT architecture.
High-level security concerns—like unauthorized data exposure and leaks, weak access controls, susceptibility to attacks and availability disruptions—affect traditional IT and cloud systems alike. Like any computing environment, cloud security involves maintaining adequate preventative protections so you:
Know that the data and systems are safe
Can see the current state of security
Know immediately if anything unusual
Can trace and respond to unexpected events
Why cloud security is different
While many people understand the benefits of cloud computing, they’re equally deterred by the security threats. We get it. It’s hard to wrap your head around something that exists somewhere between amorphous resources sent through the internet and a physical server. It’s a dynamic environment where things are always changing—like security threats. The thing is that, for the most part, Cloud Security is IT security. And once you understand the specific differences, the word “cloud” doesn’t feel as insecure.
Security has a lot to do with access. Traditional environments usually control access using a perimeter security model. Cloud environments are highly connected, making it easier for traffic to bypass traditional perimeter defences. Insecure application programming interfaces (APIs), weak identity and credentials management, account hijacks and malicious insiders may pose threats to the system and data. Preventing unauthorized access in the cloud requires shifting to a data-centric approach, Encrypt the data, Strengthen the authorization process, Require strong passwords and 2 factor authentication, Build security into every level.
Sophisticated threat landscape
Sophisticated threats are anything that negatively impacts modern computing which—of course—includes the cloud. Increasingly sophisticated malware and other attacks like Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are designed to evade network defences by targeting vulnerabilities in the computing stack. Data breaches can result in unauthorized information disclosure and data tampering. There’s no clear solution to these threats, except that it’s your responsibility to stay on top of the cloud security practices that are evolving to keep up with emerging threats – WMK can help you win this fight.
Any threat to your data is a threat to your business. The SFM Cloud backup strategy will replicate, protect and manage your organizational data. Our Back-up solutions can either replace or complement on-premise backups to ensure business continuity and multi-layered data redundancies. We protect your data to ensure redundancy.
WMK Cloud backup solutions enable your enterprise to replicate your data in a remote data centers that will enable your enterprise to have all of its critical data and system accessible in the event of a disaster. Add more advanced data replication options, such as Geo-Redundant Storage (GRS) and Geo-Zone-Redundant Storage (GZRS) and your risk of data loss and ability to recover quickly increases dramatically.
Our Azure Storage and Backup solutions always store multiple copies of your data so it is protected from planned & unplanned events, including hardware failures, network or power outages and catastrophic manmade and natural disasters. Data redundancy ensures that your storage account is extremely risk-tolerant, even in the face of failures.
When deciding which redundancy option is best for your business, consider the tradeoffs between lower costs and higher availability and durability. Factors for which redundancy option you should choose include:
How your data is replicated in the primary region
Whether your data is replicated to a second region that is geographically distant to the primary region, to protect against regional disasters.
Whether your application requires read access to the replicated data in the secondary region if the primary region becomes unavailable for any reason.
WMK offers a variety of backup solutions tailored to meet your disaster recovery needs. Don’t wait-your data is just too important.
