What is VIRTUALIZATION? Historically servers have run a single operating system and required a dedicated machine to process applications and data.The new trend is virtualization, which allows you to run multiple virtual machines or VM’s on a single physical computer.
By inserting a thin layer of software on the computer hardware, multiple operating systems and applications can run concurrently realizing a smaller footprint and a more cost effective use of resources. See how it works!
- Rapid Scalability
- Reduced Power Consumption
Should I VIRTUALIZE? According to VMware ©, a leader in virtualization software, the top 5 reasons to adopt virtualization software include:
- Get more out of your existing resources: Pool common infrastructure resources and break the legacy “one application to one server” model with server consolidation.
- Reduce datacenter costs by reducing your physical infrastructure and improving your server to admin ratio: Fewer servers and related IT hardware means reduced real estate and reduced power and cooling requirements. Better management tools let you improve your server to admin ratio so personnel requirements are reduced as well.
- Increase availability of hardware and applications for improved business continuity: Securely backup and migrate entire virtual environments with no interruption in service. Eliminate planned downtime and recover immediately from unplanned issues.
- Gain operational flexibility: Respond to market changes with dynamic resource management, faster server provisioning and improved desktop and application deployment.
- Improve desktop manageability and security: Deploy, manage and monitor secure desktop environments that users can access locally or remotely, with or without a network connection, on almost any standard desktop, laptop or tablet PC.
