Virtualization is the concept of running several operating system instances on one physical machine. Each operating system instance is a virtual machine. Each virtual machine (VM) operates side by side on the physical hardware, yet is independent and unaware of another VM’s existence. The VM’s share the resources of the physical machine allowing for maximum efficiency.
Benefits of Virtualization
- Sharing of resources on the hardware is most cost effective
- The ability to run legacy operating systems and software on newer hardware makes migrations easier than before
- Replication of servers at a cost far less than colocation makes VM’s an excellent data protection tool.
- Leasing a virtual server is a great way to give your company access to its data from anywhere in the world.
