Virtualization is used by many of today’s businesses to reduce the power consumption, air conditioning costs, and office space utilization that are associated with server farm growth. It’s a combination of software and hardware engineering that creates Virtual Machines (VMs) – a construct of computer hardware that allows a single machine to act as if it where many. Virtualization works because most guest operating systems and applications don’t need the full use of the underlying hardware. This allows for greater flexibility, control and isolation by removing the dependency on a given hardware platform. Today, virtualization isn’t just for servers, it now covers applications, networks, data and desktops. To discuss this option for your business, click here to connect with an ETA representative.
