What Is Virtualization?
Virtualization allows you to run multiple applications and operating systems independently on a single hardware platform, or quickly move them from one server to another.
The Benefits of Virtualization:
Running more applications on a single server means less hardware to purchase, less equipment to power, and less to maintain. Virtualization can also help increase up-time and improve your IT team’s responsiveness to business needs.
Virtualization is a reality… that can save you time and money.
Virtualization is changing the way resources are deployed and managed by simplifying and speeding up the IT response to a changing business environment.
- It saves money: Reduce IT management requirements and expenses by running multiple applications and operating systems independently on a single server.
- It’s good for the environment: Utilizing a single hardware platform to run multiple operating systems/applications saves energy.
- It reduces IT admin work: Prioritize business needs and maximize server resources by quickly moving workloads from one virtual work-space to another.
- It makes Disaster Recovery more efficient: Various virtual backup and recovery methods allow for quicker more efficient recoveries; restored to even dissimilar hardware from the original hardware.
Whether you’re a small organization trying to extend the value of the resources you already have, or a large data-center that’s pushing the automation envelope.
The impact of virtualization extends well beyond the immediate savings in hardware, power and cooling expenses. With fewer servers to maintain, your team can focus on innovation for your business instead of maintenance.
