Using Merit VirtualDataCenters

Whether it's for a temporary solution or a long-term project, Merit VirtualDataCenters can be an affordable way to add computing resources without making an investment in hardware.

Benefits of Virtual Data Centers

A Virtual Data Center (VDC) enables the sharing of hardware resources between multiple systems at the same time. By virtualizing your data and applications and storing them using Merit VirtualDataCenters, your information can be easily moved from one place to another if need be. This flexibility prevents data from being compromised and allows upgrades to be made with zero impact on functionality. The secure transference of data makes the most of your existing servers by increasing uptime and consolidating the resources that are already in motion, clearing up space for new opportunities.
