Jack Henry & Associates Inc., a provider of integrated technology solutions and data processing services for financial institutions, announced its commitment to support its growing number of client/server-based complementary products with server virtualization. 

Server virtualization distributes computing power by consolidating multiple independent server environments that consist of operating systems and application software on a smaller number of servers, which can generate significant cost and time saving benefits for Jack Henry & Associates’ clients. This announcement follows months of research and continued success with product and technology testing. Jack Henry & Associates is certifying its complementary products, and is currently supporting VMware ESX solutions with plans to support Microsoft’s Hyper-V solutions in the future.

With virtualization technologies now maturing, Jack Henry & Associates expects its customers will realize tangible benefits from server virtualization. Reducing the number of physical servers lessens hardware costs and ongoing energy requirements, reduces floor space and cooling requirements, expedites the deployment of new business solutions, enhances disaster recovery and business continuity, and can solve a number of inherent IT-related operational issues.

“Many organizations have been watching and waiting for the definitive direction of virtualization, and we believe the technology is now mature enough that it cannot be ignored,” says Jack Prim, CEO of Jack Henry & Associates. “Considering the current economic environment, the timing of our external virtualization initiative could not be better because it can generate immediate and ongoing operating efficiencies and cost savings for our customers.”
