What is "Virtualization"?

Virtualization allows for multiple virtual servers (known as Virtual Machines) to run on a single physical server simultaneously. Our vendors provide virtualization services based on VMwares ESX Server platform, exclusively on a single-tenant model, where the ESX server is dedicated to a given client. Windows and Red Hat Linux are both supported as ‘guest’ operating systems. Virtualization’s most obvious benefit is consolidation of servers, but its less obvious benefits are what make it a truly revolutionary technology for the datacenter: by abstracting the server from the hardware it runs on, Virtual Machines (VMs) become truly portable, allowing them to move from physical server to physical server without reconfiguration, which facilitates rapid provisioning and recovery.

If you would like to know more about virtualization or managed hosting you can contact me directly at woody@globalcoloquote.com or 917-710-5226.
