BASCOM Now Offers Virtualized Filter Solutions to Streamline Costs and Simplify Operations
Hauppauge, New York—April 20, 2012—-BASCOM Global Internet Services, Inc., an innovative developer of instructional technology security and curriculum tools, today announces the release of virtual appliances for its Frontera™, Patronus™, and Global Chalkboard™ solutions. Tight technology budgets combined with the constantly growing demand for computer access can cause financial stress. To help our customers overcome these challenges, BASCOM is now offering a virtualized filter option.
When a single appliance is dedicated to a specific application, hardware costs are increased because the server is underutilized. A virtualization filter maximizes hardware by allowing multiple applications to be consolidated on a single device. Since virtual appliances enable multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single machine, they reduce capital expenses, electricity costs, and administration.
By streamlining solutions, integration, and support VM filter appliances also ease the burdens on System Administrators. A customer can standardize on a hardware platform and easily allocate additional computer resources. Content filtering on a virtual machine provides savings through economies of scale, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.
“A virtualized solution delivers the same advanced network security, web filtering, and mobile security as a dedicated appliance, but with added benefits.” states Robert DeRosa, BASCOM’s Chief Technology Officer. “Since hardware is optimized, there’s less costs involved. VM filters also simplify deployment, migration, and daily operation.”
