So what is Virtualization 101?
The process of virtualization means creating a virtual version of your IT assets.
How does it work?
Virtualization uses simulating software that mimics the existence of hardware, and it helps to create a virtual computer system. This virtual computer system can then host multiple machines and run on one single hardware.
What IT assets can be virtualized?
This can range from servers, networks, computers, applications and storage devices, and more.
How would virtualization be beneficial for my business?
Here are some examples of how your business can benefit from virtualization:
- Application virtualization: lets multiple copies of an app be shared from one physical server
- Desktop virtualization: this means several desktops can function on one physical server
- Server virtualization: enables multiple virtual machines to run on a single physical server
Essentially, virtualizing enables your IT assets to run at their best at a lower cost!
Virtualization can significantly reduce capital expenditure on physical hardware, as the solution enables organizations to use virtual infrastructure rather than physical hardware to run the software. Consolidating resources means less hardware is required and your assets are fully optimized. Virtualization cost savings can also come from its ability to reduce operating costs associated with data center storage space, power, heating, and cooling that are essential in keeping hardware running optimally.
Not only does virtualization enhances cash flow, one of the main reasons for virtualizing IT infrastructure is avoiding/decreasing downtime. This means if one IT asset fails, there’s a technology backup ready to act as failover support. With everything being available right away, your business can save on time and funds needed to bring everything back up to speed.
