Virtualization is the hot topic nowadays and it is not just a technology trend. It’s also not the latest trend, but it’s new in many companies as businesses of all sizes are now investing in virtualization technologies to grab its many benefits. The benefits include reduction in physical servers, energy savings, better disaster recovery, desktop and server provisioning and many more.
In this advanced computing and technological world, virtualization is a creation of the virtual version of a device, such as virtual operating system (OS), computer hardware platform, storage device and other computer network resources. It also involves a software that powers cloud applications and other platforms. Virtualization software is created to configure and also separate physical infrastructure, thereby creating many dedicated resources. Additionally, the virtualization software also allows a single computer system to create and run one or several virtual environments.
HOW DOES VIRTUALIZATION BENEFIT YOUR YOUR BUSINESS?
By virtualizing the networks and computing environments you can provide many benefits to your business- including better backup, disaster recovery and including lower costs, migration to the cloud and a better testing experiment.
CAN YOUR BUSINESS BENEFIT FROM VIRTUALIZATION?
To know whether or not virtualization is the perfect solution for your business, it’s better to consider your business’s unique requirements and needs in order to function and operate on a daily basis:
How will virtualization integrate with the existing systems of your organization?
What are the overall costs of migration to a virtual cloud?
How and who will provide support for your scalability needs and virtualized environment?
One of the major benefits of virtualization is that it helps businesses implement cloud computing. Although virtualization is a software that operates hardware, cloud computing refers to the applications and services delivered through an (a private or public) virtualized environment.Virtualization allows your business to implement private cloud infrastructures, which have several great advantages over public cloud infrastructure. With the private cloud infrastructure, you can lease or own the virtualized software and hardware that provides cloud-based services.
SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF VIRTUALIZATION ON A PRIVATE CLOUD
- BUDGET INTEGRATION: Virtualization software makes it easier to control and monitor the IT budget, as the costs of management, infrastructure, and administration maintenance remain a direct IT cost.
- FLEXIBILITY: With virtualization, you can run multiple OS Operating Systems and applications on the same hardware.
- INCREASED ROI: Virtualization allows you to streamline and maximize resources, thereby reducing the amount of physical hardware required to provide and maintain greater usage and value for the services actually needed.
Virtualization brings great and positive transformations to your business such as improved server provisioning, better disaster recovery solutions, increased staff productivity and the list goes on.However, still, it looks like a difficult task to move to a complete virtual infrastructure.
