Businesses are challenged by the limitations of not only data centers, but also the servers that reside within them. Physical servers are designed to run only one operating system and one application at a time. This means that multiple servers are needed to host varying operations, which can be troublesome considering data centers only have so much space available. However, physical servers only operate at a small percentage of their full capacity.
Virtualization is the conversion of a single physical server into multiple virtual servers. This is possible through the use of software that divides the physical server into independent machines. A virtual server runs the same copy of the operating system (OS) as the physical server but is able to run independently from the rest of the stack.
This solution has been revolutionary for business because this software allows administrators to multiply their available computing environments. At the same time, having virtual infrastructure creates an opportunity to save money by lowering power consumption, adding physical space to your office, and improving resource utilization. Let Net3 IT help you take advantage of the benefits from virtualization.
