What Is Virtualization?
You can think of data center virtualization as the replacement of physical hardware with virtual software that gives you the same amount of storage and computing power. Hypervisor is a software program that functions on one computer. Once running, hypervisor allows you to create virtual hardware within it. On these new virtual computers (called guest machines), you then install operating systems. This can turn one computer and operating system into multiple virtual computers and operating systems. All systems are unique and self-contained.
How Does Data Center Virtualization Benefit Your Business?
Adding virtualization to your data center helps you stay competitive in the ever-changing and competitive IT sector of your business. It cuts costs and provides the key benefits outlined below:
Reduces Heat & the Cost of Cooling
The IT industry has spent time and money developing and installing better and better cooling systems to reduce the heat in data centers and protect your hardware. With virtualization comes fewer computers and less heat. This makes it easier and cheaper to keep your hardware at optimal storage temperatures.
Easily Restore Your Hardware
When you test new software or new strategies on a virtual machine, you don’t run the risk of destroying your computer. You can simply reset or restore your virtual machine. Easy restoration has the added benefit of protecting you during a system crash or disaster recovery.
Cheaper System Upgrades
Replacing all the hardware in your data center is much more expensive than replacing virtual machines. When you need an upgrade to your system, you can upgrade it virtually rather than purchasing all new hardware. If you do need to purchase new hardware, you save money because you have fewer computers after virtualization.
