Server Virtualization

How does server virtualization work?

Server Virtualization uses software to create a Virtual Machine (VM) that emulates a physical computer. This creates a separate server environment that is logically isolated from the host physical server. By providing multiple Virtual Machines at once, this approach allows several operating systems to run simultaneously on a single physical machine.

Rather than paying for many under-utilized server machines, each dedicated to a specific workload, server virtualization allows those workloads to be consolidated onto a smaller number of more fully-used machines.

Run many “virtual servers” on one physical server (hardware) and save money many ways. You can even run multiple operating systems on one physical server machine.

Advantages include:

  • Cost savings (each physical server typically costs $400-$800 year in electricity and cooling costs.)
  • Unified backups across all servers
  • Reduce infrastructure complexity
  • Remove older hardware
  • Reduce Maintenance costs
  • Better disaster recovery
