Server virtualization is a virtualization technique that involves partitioning a physical server into a number of small, virtual servers with the help of virtualization software. In server virtualization, each virtual server runs multiple operating system instances at the same time.
The benefits are to consolidate physical servers to run as virtual on one physical server to reduce the hardware requirement as well as the power consumption and server maintenance. It is also provide robust and high availability feature as part of Business Continuity plan.
Using server virtualization, multiple operating systems can run on a single physical server as virtual machines, each with access to the underlying server’s computing resources.
VMware’s wizard-based guides take the complexity out of setup and configuration. Time-saving features such as auto-deploy, dynamic patching, and live VM migration reduce routine tasks from hours to minutes. Management becomes much faster and easier, boosting productivity without adding to your head count.
VMware virtualization integrates robust availability and fault tolerance to protect virtualized application. Should a node or server ever fail, all its VMs are automatically restarted on another machine, with no downtime or data loss.
VMware virtualization platform blends CPU and memory innovations with a compact, purpose-built hypervisor that eliminates the frequent patching, maintenance and I/O bottlenecks of other platforms
