What Is Virtualization?
Virtualization makes better use of network storage. If you haven’t yet taken advantage of virtualization technologies, you will soon. Server virtualization has recently gained in popularity, with the number of users nearly doubling in the past five years. Virtualization is now the dominant computing platform in the world.
Virtualization Services from ICS partition your physical servers into smaller virtual ones. Each of these virtual machines (VMs) runs its own operating system. This immediately maximizes your server resources. Contact us to learn more: (510) 482-9522 firstname.lastname@example.org
Virtualization lowers your technology and energy costs. You’ll need fewer servers, networking gear, racks, and hardware. Your maintenance, heating, cooling, and energy costs are all reduced. Plus, instead of purchasing new equipment, you simply add a new virtual server when you need more storage space for your data and I.T. solutions.
Server virtualization isolates applications, so you no longer need to worry about incompatibilities. You’ll realize improved application performance, with much faster provisioning. Virtualization also allows you to fully utilize your physical servers, and set up VMs with the precise amount of memory and storage you require.
With virtualization, your data can be migrated to another server when you need to perform repairs or specific tasks. This way you don’t need to shut down servers, so downtime is no longer an issue. Your data is always available, even if a server is shut down — so business continuity is greatly enhanced. Virtualization’s single-system image also makes recovery painless.
If you’re considering moving data to the cloud, the process is a lot less complex with virtualization. The data stored on virtualized servers is already free of hardware, so making the transition to a public or private cloud is simple.
