Virtualization lets one server do the job of multiple computers, by sharing the resources of a single computer across multiple environments.
Installing traditional physical servers would typically require a separate server for each server role. By utilising virtual server technology (Microsoft’s HyperV or VMWare, for example), the number of physical servers can be greatly reduced as virtual servers are consolidated on to fewer incidences of physical hardware. Virtualising servers will result in improved resource utilization as well as reductions in real estate, power and cooling requirements. In addition to energy saving and lower capital expenses due to more efficient use of hardware resources, virtualisation provides high availability of resources, increased security, and improved disaster recovery processes.
“We Help you to plan your strategy for Server Virtualization using VMWARE or Microsoft Server 2008 Hyper-V Technology.”
- VMware Server implementation
- VMware Server is a free virtualization product that runs on Linux and Windows 2000/2003 Servers. VMware Server enables companies to partition a physical server into multiple virtual machines and to start experiencing the benefits of virtualization with minimal investment. VMware Server is a robust yet easy to use product for users new to server virtualization technology and is based on VMware’s field-proven technology
- Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Server Virtualization Support
- Hyper-V is a new feature incorporated into Windows Server 2008 that provides the technology to build and manage an advanced virtualized server system. Hyper-V allows virtual machines to utilize unprecedented amounts of memory, high-powered multi-core processors, dynamic storage systems, and the latest high-speed network connectivity. With integrated tools for managing hardware and virtual resources, Hyper-V cuts the time required to configure hardware and software and replicate computing environments.
