Virtualization comes in different forms where each one would offer businesses a range of benefits. By far ‘Server Virtualization’ amongst SME’s is the most popular because it allows companies to consolidate existing physical servers using virtualization products such as VMWare and Windows Virtual Server.
Some of the Benefits of Server Virtualization includes:-
- Reduce capital expenses – by decreasing the number of physical servers, you will reduce hardware maintenance costs, energy consumption and save space.
- Maximizing use of existing resources – Virtualization makes server administration more efficient, agile and less time consuming.
- By segregating applications into their own ‘virtual server’ it can prevent the applications from affecting another application when upgrades or changes needed to be made.
- Faster data backup and recovery as image-based backup and recovery will be faster than tradition methods.
