Improved Server Performance and Utilization
Virtualization fundamentally changes the way IT resources are managed and deployed.
Virtualization provides unmatched flexibility, performance and utilization by moving server workloads from one virtual workspace to another. The server administrator uses a software application to divide one physical server into multiple isolated virtual environments. This maximizes server resources on the fly based on your current business needs.
Maximize resources — Virtualization can reduce the number of physical systems you need to acquire, and you can get more value out of the servers. Most traditionally built systems are underutilized. Virtualization allows maximum use of the hardware investment.
Multiple systems — With virtualization, you can also run multiple types of applications and even run different operating systems for those applications on the same physical hardware.
IT budget integration — When you use virtualization, management, administration and all the attendant requirements of managing your own infrastructure remain a direct cost of your IT operation.
What is Virtualization?
In computing, virtualization is software that separates physical infrastructures to create various dedicated resources. It is the fundamental technology that powers cloud computing.
Virtualization software makes it possible to run multiple operating systems and multiple applications on the same server at the same time. Something as simple as partitioning a hard drive is considered virtualization because one drive is partitioned 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.
For small businesses with too many underutilized servers or escalating IT costs, virtualization offers relief by fundamentally changing the way IT resources are managed and deployed.
| Fast provisioning and dynamic load balancing
For improved application performance.
| Reduced energy needs
Fewer servers means lower electricity and cooling bills and a smaller carbon footprint.
| Consolidated servers with optimized workloads
Increase utilization to accomplish more with fewer servers.
| Simplified disaster recovery
Virtualization’s single-system image makes recovery painless.
How is virtualization different from cloud computing?
Virtualization is software that manipulates hardware, while cloud computing refers to a service that results from that manipulation. Virtualization is a foundation element of cloud computing and helps deliver on the value of cloud computing. Cloud computing is the delivery of shared computing resources, software or data — as a service and on-demand through the Internet.
Most of the confusion occurs because virtualization and cloud computing work together to provide different types of services, as is the case with private clouds.
The cloud can, and most often does, include virtualization products to deliver the compute service. The difference is that a true cloud provides self-service capability, elasticity, automated management, scalability and pay-as you go service that is not inherent in virtualization.
