Maximize your server potential

Server virtualization technology has been taking over the industry. This technology hosts several virtual servers on each existing physical server. What’s more, each virtual server performs as an individual server by running its own operating system and applications. As a result, organizations gain recovery tools, migration of workloads, and agile capacity. Consequently, it enhances organizations’ productivity.

SAVE MONEY

How can you increase your IT capabilities while cutting costs? When you virtualize, not only are you utilizing your existing servers, but each physical server also converts to host several virtual servers. So, instead of buying new servers, you’re actually able to ditch some of the servers you already have. Consequently, you save money on servers (obviously), power, cooling systems, and infrastructure.

REDUCE DATA CENTER FOOTPRINT

Server virtualization reduces the footprint of your entire datacenter because it requires fewer servers, networking gears, and racks. We work with the leading virtual server products – VMWare vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer. We find that each has a unique set of strengths and make recommendations without bias.  Above all, we avidly seek to match the right mix with your specific needs.

The time has come for all organizations to embrace server virtualization. Virtualization is changing the way we work. It is allowing organizations to focus on critical business needs rather than worry about their hardware systems.

The 3 main forms of Server Virtualization

Virtual          Machine

Paravirtual machine

virtualization at the OS

Virtual machines are based on the host/guest paradigm. Each guest runs on a virtual imitation of the hardware layer. This approach allows the guest operating system to run without modifications.

The paravirtual machine (PVM) model is also based on the host/guest paradigm — and it uses a virtual machine monitor too. In the paravirtual machine model, however, The VMM actually modifies the guest operating system’s code.

Virtualization at the OS level works a little differently. It isn’t based on the host/guest paradigm. In the OS level model, the host runs a single OS kernel as its core and exports operating system functionality to each of the guests.

FASTER DELIVERY OF NEW SERVER WORKLOADS

This is one of the biggest benefits of server virtualization. With technology rapidly advancing, it’s imperative to be able to quickly launch new server workloads. You shouldn’t have to think twice about whether staying IT relevant is worth the deployment efforts. Luckily, server virtualization allows you to have the latest services running in your environment ASAP. Additionally, there’s no need to wait for the delivery of new physical servers, and you don’t have to deal with the hassle of “racking, stacking, and cabling” new servers.
