Server virtualization serves as a consolidation strategy that decreases space, time, and IT costs for businesses.
Server Virtualization merges multiple servers into one server. It also consolidates the servers’ identities, operating systems, and processors. Server Virtualization works through software. The software creates a Virtual Machine, which acts as a computer and creates a separate operating system environment.
When multiple Virtual Machines are created, many operating systems can run simultaneously. That’s because server virtualization begins with one OS and then distributes OS “functionality” to other VMs. The benefit to this method is that the OS environment runs independently from its host, allowing for more efficient computer usage.
