Why Server Virtualisation?
Reduced Hardware Costs
When you implement a virtualized server, hardware utilization is increased because one physical server can now hold multiple virtual machines. Applications no longer need their own server because each virtual machine on the physical server now runs them.
Having fewer physical servers means there are less of them to maintain and manage. This leaves your IT staff more time to spend on more productive tasks such as driving new business initiatives, cutting expenses and raising revenue.
Greater Disaster Recovery
Backing up critical data is done quickly and effectively because your company can effortlessly create a replication site. Most enterprise virtualization platforms contain software that helps automate the failover during a disaster. The software also allows you to test a disaster recovery failover—think of it as your data center’s own fire escape plan.
