The core of every virtualization is in „Virtual machine“, tightly isolated software container with operative system and applications. Considering that each virtual machine is completely isolated and independent, most of them could simultaneously work on a single computer.
Tiny software layer called Hypervisor is responsible for operation of virtual machine known as the host. Hypervisor also perform dynamical allocation of computer resources to each machine if needed. This kind of architecture redefines your computer resources and assures the following:
- More applications on server – Considering that each virtual machine encapsulates complete machine, it is possible to perform several applications and operative systems on one physical server in one time unit.
- Maximal server efficiency, minimal number of servers – Each physical server uses its full capacity, guaranteeing significant savings.
- Faster, simpler reservation of application resources – Virtual machines are files ease for manipulation. This makes things simpler, faster and enables flexibility for your IT. Virtual machines could be transferred from one physical server to another with no downtime, process named as Live Migration. Also, it is possible to virtualize business-critical applications in order to improve performances, availability and scalability at the same time reducing expenses.
Using virtual infrastructure could significantly help in simplifying the complex IT environment, meaning that you simplify operations and maintenance within mentioned framework. Management of today’s virtual environments typically involves intelligent automatized options. By virtualization of your IT infrastructure you facilitate its tracking performances with integrated tools. These tools eliminate manual routines of IT technicians for maintenance and problem diagnostics making it faster and easier to service. For this reason, employees of IT sector could focus on more important things regarding your businesses.
The Hypervisors we implement with many years of successful experience are as follows:
- VMware vSphere
- Microsoft Hyper-V
- IBM PowerVM
