Desktop Virtualization

Maybe your business has an application that still needs to run on an old operating system, but you need to replace workstations on your network and want to take advantage of the improvements available in the newer OS version.  Or maybe you have a Mac user that needs to be able to run Windows-based apps.
Desktop virtualization may present an answer for you.  Just as with server virtualization, two completely separate operating systems can exist side-by-side on the same  computer.   Most computers today are vastly underutilized because, although the technology is capable of more, most run a single operating system and a single application.

Virtualization lets you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that one physical computer across multiple environments.

How does it work?
Each virtual machine contains a complete system, eliminating potential conflicts. Virtualization works by inserting a thin layer of software directly on the computer hardware or on a host operating system. This contains a virtual machine monitor or “hypervisor” that allocates hardware resources dynamically and transparently. Multiple operating systems run concurrently on a single physical computer and share hardware resources with each other. By encapsulating an entire machine, including CPU, memory, operating system, and network devices, a virtual machine is completely compatible with all standard x86 operating systems, applications, and device drivers. You can safely run several operating systems and applications at the same time on a single computer, with each having access to the resources it needs when it needs them.
