Server Virtualization from iCepts.
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.
- 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
