Server Virtualization

Server virtualization Solution:

Most of customer being able to run multiple operating systems on the same set of physical hardware. Now virtualization soluton is being able to make efficient use all the physical hardware and being able to reduce multiple racks to one single rack of servers. There would be no more wasted RAM or disk space, there would be no more underutilization of expensive processors and there would be no more wasted space in the datacenter. Hardware costs, space requirements, power and cooling costs are reduced.

Server virtualization includes the ability to abstract the operating system from the underlying hardware. This provides a new way to look at computing and more importantly at the datacenter. We’re no longer stuck running one OS per physical server. We can now run multiple operating systems regardless of the physical box they are sitting on. Virtualization also provides the ability to run multiple instances of very different operating systems on the same machine.

Benefits of Virtualization

In addition, running multiple operating systems on the same physical hardware, virtualization using VMware’s ESX Server with Virtual Infrastructure provides many other benefits just as important.  OS and application software updates, upgrades and service packs to one system no longer negatively impact another system.

Resource Provisioning provides the ability to give the operating systems and application the required resources to run effectively. Thin provisioning is giving the operating system what it needs to run effectively and disaster recovery are greatly accelerated and enhanced through virtualization.

 

Testing environments are quickly brought up and taken down with virtualized test machines.  Besides, VMware’s vMotion provides for moving guests off their underlying physical hardware to another host seamlessly with no interruption to service and automate your disaster recovery process, manage recovery plans centrally and perform non-disruptive testing with vCenter Site Recovery Manager.
