Today’s computer hardware was designed to run a single operating system and a single application, leaving most machines vastly underutilized. Virtualization lets you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that one physical computer.
Virtualization works by inserting a thin layer of software on a computer or a host operating system. This software contains a monitor that allocates hardware resources dynamically and transparently. Multiple operating systems run concurrently on a physical computer and share hardware resources with each other. You can safely run several operating systems and applications at the same time on a single computer, with each having access to the resources it needs when it needs them.
Virtualization technologies, such as VMware and Hyper-V, can even spread these virtual machines across large pools of servers and storage, called Virtual Infrastructure. This increases availability of virtual servers by reducing the importance of individual physical servers.
Meta Technology Solutions provides businesses with the opportunity to virtualize their Servers, Desktops and Applications. Please contact us today so we can help your business take advantage of all these benefits.
