Virtualization is a process that allows for more efficient utilization of physical computer hardware by creating multiple virtual machines (VMs) that run on a single physical server.
• Resource efficiency: Virtualization lets you run several applications and operating systems on a single server, maximizing the use of the hardware's computing capacity and reducing the number of servers needed.
• Easier management: Virtualization makes it easier to deploy, configure, and secure VMs using software policies and templates, reducing manual errors and improving consistency.• Reduced downtime: Virtualization enables faster backup and recovery of VMs, as well as better availability and disaster recovery options, minimizing the impact of hardware failures or maintenance.
• Control independence: Virtualization allows you to run different operating systems and applications on the same server, giving you more flexibility and choice over your IT environment.
• Green-friendly: Virtualization reduces the energy consumption and carbon footprint of your IT infrastructure by using fewer physical servers and cooling systems.
