Virtualization has quickly become a buzz word among large and small businesses alike – and for good reason. One of the major overall benefits of virtualization is cost savings.
When businesses talk about virtualization, they’re usually referring to server virtualization, which means partitioning one physical server into several virtual servers, or machines. Each virtual machine can interact independently with other devices, applications, data and users as though it were a separate physical server.
How Can Virtualization Reduce Your Costs?
Let’s assume for a moment you need five servers with five separate operating systems. Rather than making the significant investment in the hardware and software required to fulfill this need, the flexibility of virtualization gives you the ability to run all of those operating systems and applications on a single server, saving you thousands of dollars!
Consolidating servers through the virtualization process can not only reduce costs by eliminating the need for you to purchase and maintain physical machines, but also reduce the amount of physical space required to store the servers or data center.
Virtual machines can run different operating systems and multiple applications while sharing the resources of a single server. And, because each virtual machine is isolated from other virtualized machines, if one crashes, it doesn’t affect the others.
