Virtualization lets you run multiple virtual machines simultaneously on a single physical machine, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that one physical computer across multiple environments. Different virtual machines can run different operating systems and multiple applications on the same physical computer ( source http://www.vmware.com/virtualization/what-is-virtualization.html).
Can I virtualize my server or my application Sure ! Virtualization is invisible to the end user and to the actual software running in virtualize mode. You will only see the benefits when you virtualize your server !
When virtual, servers are:
- Easier to maintain;
- Easy to recreate in case of a hardware failiure ( see high availability );
- Less power and space hungry since they coexist on the same hardware
Redundancy ( High Availability )
Virtual servers are easy to reproduce ( copy ) and we can do it locally on a second server or on our server for availability purpose. So in case you would loose one server you can use a second server to continue your normal It operations.
There are different kinds of virtualization, but at Logisoft Technologies we do our best to offer the simplest solution to our customers for a minimum investment in hardware and license fees !
