What is virtualization and why is it important? Simply put, it’s a method for running multiple windows machines (essentially as a windows program) using a single server.
New technology is hard to keep up with, especially when it involves more space, time, and management. Virtualization is a flexible tool that allows you to move server workloads around so you can always have the optimum performance out of each one. Our virtualization services help save space and money and doesn’t use up more servers, computers, or people.
When you sign up with Full Spectrum Computer Services’ virtualization services, you can expect:
- Reduced costs, going green– With virtualization solutions, you will be able to stop buying servers and optimize the ones you have, thus reducing electric costs and server costs significantly.
- Faster application and computer performance– Programs and files will load faster, resulting in more work time.
- Peace of mind with unexpected problems– Disasters happen, but you can be ready to get your network back online with a simple recovery program.
Server Virtualization is an important part of doing business with modern technology. Using virtual machines that have been abstracted from their physical counterparts can provide benefits such as decreased capital and operational costs, and improved workplace efficiency. By effectively leveraging virtualization technologies to your advantage with Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware, your organization can ensure smooth operations.
Microsoft’s virtualization software, Hyper-V, is a hypervisor that allows your organization to create and host virtual machines, like desktops and servers, on x86-64 systems. These systems can then be exposed to your computing infrastructure through your network, effectively allowing your team to access mission-critical information, cloud-based applications, and even a full virtual desktop infrastructure, without running the information locally on their own workstations or thin clients.
VMware Virtual Servers
Server Virtualization with VMware allows your business to create virtual machines, like servers and desktops, and host them in an online environment. You can then connect your business’s workstations and thin clients to them. A simple user interface means that your organization can easily add, remove, and delete virtual machines as the need arises.
Virtualization = Money Saved!
When you virtualize your servers and workstations using Hyper-V or VMware, you are essentially abstracting the software from the physical component, allowing you to store the software and deploy it through a virtual environment. This means that you no longer have to rely on multiple servers to host all of your data and applications. This naturally leads to a decrease in operational costs, like electricity and air conditioning, that might be required to optimize the functionality of your hardware.
There are plenty of other reasons why virtual machines are a valuable investment, but virtualization solutions practically speak for themself. By using Hyper-V or VMware to take full advantage of your organization’s technology, your business can get a leg-up on its competition.
