Virtualization

Increase business flexibility with virtualization.

Uses for Virtualization

While server virtualization is the most common use, other uses include:
  • Network – Splitting bandwidth among different sources, often used with cloud computing and web hosting
  • Storage – Creates a single large hard drive by pooling together multiple physical drives into one virtual drive
  • Desktop – Virtualizes the desktop environment and users access a remote virtual desktop through a client
  • Data – Provides better resiliency and broader access to data
  • Application – Allows applications to run completely independent of the operating system, offering better compatibility

What is Virtualization?

Scalable Computing

The main purpose of virtualization is to make computing more scalable. In the past, physical resources couldn’t be easily divided. Every component required its own physical hardware to run. With virtualization, your business can quickly scale without needing to buy new hardware.

For example, if a new server is needed to manage email, a virtual server could be created on an existing server and the resources would be shared.
