Server Virtualization defines Convenience

Bring out your hardware’s full potential by splitting it in half !
In the world of business and IT, systems process an endless amount of data. Data comes with the demand for more processing power and abundant space for storing memory. Of course to accommodate this valuable data, companies need to gear up with more hardware. Instead you can just ditch that thought and Virtualize!
Virtualization allows a software to run multiple virtual environments within an existing hardware, making hardware run at their most capable potential.
In the case of Server Virtualization, this is exactly what happens. A software splits the server in numerous virtual spaces. These secure spaces are Virtual Machines (VM), they depend on the software to divide the resources and distribute them accurately.
Server Virtualization as a whole offers impeccable benefits:
  • Move applications into one hardware and have it run more efficiently
  • Check disaster recovery over one virtual space without worry of losing data
  • Discard redundant hardware, resulting in actual free space
  • Enjoy existing services without risk of old hardware failure
  • Bask in the glory of reduced power consumption with drop of excessive hardware
  • Save on hardware and cooling cost, maintenance and set up
Pioneers in the Virtualization field, VMware's vSphere Hypervisor technology offers scalability and advanced features such as vMotion, storage vMotion, high availability, distributed resource scheduler and vSphere data protection. With these features, enterprises can accelerate their digital transformation and take on a software-defined approach to their ever-evolving IT. Now a part of DELL Technologies, VMware keeps finding novel ways to up their game.
Another prime player, Microsoft entered the field of Server Virtualization with its own sets of innovation and benefits. Microsoft introduced Hyper-V, the only non-Linux hypervisor, proving their intention to compete in the virtualization game. Hyper-V is armed with tools for management and connectivity making it even simpler for users. They also offer striking licenses for their product and the Operating Software that works with it.
Stepping upto the plate, Citrix came up with its own invention - XenServer. Although it began as an open source project, it is now a leading virtualization solution. Equipped with enterprise-class features, this comprehensive virtualization platform can easily handle multiple workload types, mixed storage and operating software or network configurations.
After all these players fighting to cast a solid shadow over the Virtualization Game, a winner is yet to come out on top. Even though they all have introduced brilliant solutions revolutionizing the industry, they only result in more competition, better solutions and a vast array for organizations to choose from. As the race keeps going, we see more players enter the field and thus promising more fantastic technology to come.
