Server virtualization is used for dividing a well configured physical server into multiple virtual servers; each of which runs its own operating system, applications, and functions independently.
Mi-Technologies provides virtualization through two technologies, namely VMware and Hyper-v. Our technical team will provide you with a well configured platform to enable you to achieve your business goals in a cost effective manner. Over multiple individual physical servers, a single virtual system has the following advantages:
MAIN ADVANTAGES OF SERVER VIRTUALIZATION
REDUCE HARDWARE COST
The physical servers, despite their requirement of high resources are unable to completely use the available hardware that leads to their under utilization and wastage. Virtualization, on the other hand, provides for optimization of the existing resources throughout the server environment. It bids for improved CPU performance and optimum use of all the available supplies of hardware.
REDUCE NUMBER OF SERVERS
Virtualization effects, though consolidation of multiple servers, i.e. it eliminates the need for a number of physical servers in an organization.This,not only reduces the number of physical servers required for the job, but also causes a great reduction in the required server room space, power and physical labour for maintenance of many physical servers.
INCREASED BUSINESS AVAILABILITY
Virtual machines offer higher availability in business due to minimal downtime in applications installed on virtual machines that also allow Live Migration; i.e. it provides for the virtual machines to move from one physical server to another without affecting the end users. Therefore, it abdicates the possibility of an adverse business impact in case of virtual machine migrations.
REDUCE THE OPERATIONAL RISKS
Virtualization directly effects into a reduced number of physical servers that also results in reduced operational risks. In addition to the risks, the cost too is greatly minimized as the virtual servers only require a single administrator for its management and maintenance as against the numerous physical servers
IMPROVED DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING ENVIRONMENTS
Every business development team requires a different operating system to work with on various hardware platforms. Earlier, these teams struggled to maintain these systems in their premises and today, virtualization completely eliminates the need for it by having the operating systems installed in the virtual systems in accordance with the user requirements. Post the completion of projects that necessitated for these operating systems, the virtual machines may be uninstalled without any additional cost or the same resources may be utilized for another project in your organization.
