Server Virtualization

Break the mold!  No longer are you restricted to a one server / one application environment. Virtualization lets you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine.  By sharing the resources of that one physical computer across multiple environments, virtualization allows you to put underutilized servers into play to improve efficiency and save IT dollars.
An operating system can’t tell the difference between a virtual machine and a physical machine, nor can applications or other computers on a network. Even the virtual machine thinks it is a “real” computer. Nevertheless, a virtual machine is composed entirely of software and contains no hardware components whatsoever. As a result, virtual machines offer a number of distinct advantages over physical hardware.

Companies of every size benefit from virtualization as a means to increase the efficiency, utilization, and flexibility of existing assets - why make the investment for a whole new server when one you already have in your environment can do the job?

Benefits of virtualization:
  • Reduce capital costs by requiring less hardware to run your apps
  • Reduce rack space requirements by consolidating apps to a single piece of hardware
  • Run multiple operating systems on a single computer including Windows, Linux and more
  • Reduce expenses by decreasing energy costs
  • Virtual machines are completely compatible with all standard x86 operating systems, applications and device drivers
  • While virtual machines share the physical resources of a single computer, they remain completely isolated from each other as if they were separate physical machines
  • Virtual machines are incredibly portable and easy to manage; copy a virtual machine from one location to another just like a software file, or save on any standard data storage medium
  • A virtual machine can be configured with virtual components (eg, CPU, network card, SCSI controller) that are completely different from the physical components that are present on the underlying hardware
