Server Virtualisation

Server virtualisation is based on the partitioning of a physical server into smaller virtual servers to help maximise your server resources.

During server virtualisation the resources of the server itself are hidden, or masked, from users, and software is used to divide the physical server into multiple virtual environments, called virtual or private servers. This is in contrast to dedicating one server to a single application or task.

Common Uses

Virtualisation can be used in all business environments from single server business up to large enterprise with 50+ severs to hosting companies that run 100’s of multiple servers as a business. This functionality helps to deliver a more stable computing environment, at a lowest total cost of ownership. It also allows for simplified deployment and testing of new applications and importantly allows for robust disaster recovery solutions that gets the business up and running quickly – less than an hour following a major disaster.
