Multiply the capacity of every machine
Server virtualisation attempts to increase resource utilisation by partitioning physical servers into several multiple virtual servers, each running its own operating system and applications. Server virtualisation makes each virtual server look and act like a physical server, multiplying the capacity of every single physical machine.
The concept of server virtualisation is widely applied in IT infrastructure as a way of minimising costs by increasing the use of existing resources. Virtualising servers is often a good solution for small- to medium-scale applications. This technology is widely used for providing cost-effective web hosting services.
At Unity, we use server virtualisation to help business save on IT resources by cutting down on the need for more hardware. Companies save on servers by being able to monitor usage and reallocate workload among existing servers rather than separately managing each workstation’s capacity.
Citrix server virtualisation
Citrix XenServer is a leading virtualisation management platform optimised for application, desktop and server virtualisation infrastructures. Consolidation and containment of workloads on XenServer enables organisations of any vertical or size to transform their business IT compute infrastructures.
Microsoft server virtualisation
Hyper-V is Microsoft’s virtualisation product. It lets you create and run virtual machines, each with its own operating system and programmes. This flexible solution is a more efficient way to use hardware than just running one operating system on physical hardware.
VMware server virtualisation
vSphere from VMware helps you get the best performance, availability, and efficiency from your infrastructure and applications. vSphere with Operations Management takes virtualisation to the next level with intelligent operations management. It provides better insights, resulting in improved performance and availability.
