One of the most compelling technologies of the last decade, Virtualization enables a working computer device to become an actual file that can run on a server. This new model enables both servers and workstations to be created in a virtual environment, offering greater flexibility for both deployment and use.
Traditional physical Windows servers typically use 10% or less of the capacity on the underlying hardware. Putting these devices on a virtual server enables you to take advantage of the hardware in a more flexible and scalable manner. Server virtualization can help you consolidate, thus reducing space, hardware, power consumption and cooling costs.
A new set of features are available through server virtualization, including faster, more flexible backups, high availability and faster recovery time in the event of a disaster.
Desktop virtualization offers the user a single corporate desktop, across almost any type of remote device, including mobile phones. Desktop virtualization can reduce your desktop hardware costs, provide faster PC provisioning, and offer greater security control and protection against malware and viruses.
