In computing, virtualization means to create a virtual version of a device or resource, such as a server, storage device, network or even an operating system where the framework divides the resource into one or more execution environments. Even something as simple as partitioning a hard drive is considered virtualization because you take one drive and partition it to create two separate hard drives. Devices, applications and human users are able to interact with the virtual resource as if it were a real single logical resource. The term virtualization has become somewhat of a buzzword, and as a result the term is now associated with a number of computing technologies including the following:

  • Server virtualization: the partitioning a physical server into smaller virtual servers.
  • Operating system-level virtualization: a type of server virtualization technology which works at the operating system (kernel) layer.
  • Network virtualization: using network resources through a logical segmentation of a single physical network
  • Storage virtualization: consolidation of multiple network storage devices
  • Application virtualization
  • VMWare
  • Microsoft Hyper-V
  • XenServer
  • Application virtualization
  • Desktop virtualization
  • Storage virtualization

Virtualization can increase IT agility, flexibility, and scalability while creating significant cost savings. Workloads get deployed faster, performance and availability increases and operations become automated, resulting in IT that’s simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate.

  • Reduce capital and operating costs
  • Minimize or eliminate downtime
  • Increase IT productivity, efficiency, agility, scalability, elasticity, and responsiveness
  • Enable business continuity, disaster recovery, and high availability
  • Simplify data center / server room management and reduce costs
  • Reduce data center / server room footprint
  • True Software-Defined Data Center
  • Energy-efficiency savings
  • Instant provisioning of servers
  • Security, Regulatory and Compliance
  • Zero downtime maintenance and low maintenance
  • Application Isolation
  • Dynamic resource sharing
  • Cloud readiness

We can help your company virtualize and consolidate your data center / server room and provide the benefits of virtualization. Using virtualization, your company can maximize the use of its server resources and reduce the number of physical servers required. The result is server consolidation, which improves efficiency and cuts costs. Consolidating server farms and data centers will bring down operational and management costs, doing more with fewer IT assets, facilities, and personnel, which are some of the costliest assets.
