The rate that technology has reduced in cost and the reduced time it takes for SMBs to implement bleeding edge technology has been staggering. A decade ago x86 Virtualisation was in its infancy and being introduced by large Enterprise businesses looking for ways to consolidate server farms and decrease their IT spend. Now, each year more and more SMBs are introducing virtualisation in order to realise the same benefits of DR, High Availability and Business Continuity solutions because even when the doors are shut customers like to have a look through your digital window in the new 24/7 consumer market. SMBs are also installing SAN based solutions for data storage in greater capacities (not so long ago once thought of as a Datacentre technology), in order to keep up with the data explosion of file based storage, and these solutions are now providing a ROI in an increasingly shorter timeframe.
Why is this trend interesting?
SMBs are more agile than their larger counterparts, able to change direction based on the wind, but the greatest asset of all is that, by leveraging technology, a small or medium sized business can actually scale up and deliver to the same number of customers that their enterprise cousins are serving, using much stricter budgets, whilst enjoying much larger margins. It will always be cheaper to add a new web server to a web farm and increase the number of transactions you can accept per second than it will be to open up another shop, stock it with products, staff and decorate it to look engaging to the customer. Technology and its implementation is the key differentiator between innovative vibrant companies leading an industry and those that are struggling to follow or barely keep up.
