What Virtualization Can Do for Your Data Storage

What is a Virtual Server?

What is a Virtual Server?

A virtual server is a server that shares hardware and software resources with other operating systems (OS) in contrast to dedicated physical servers. Server virtualization is a critical component of the modern IT data center.

The Benefits of Virtual Servers

There are several inherent advantages to server virtualization, including:

  • Cost savings from partitioning a single server into multiple virtual servers
  • Reduced data center footprint

Streamlined and efficient management and deployment of business resources (e.g., virtual desktops)

Challenges of Deploying Virtual Servers

Although efficiency gains and cost reduction realized from virtualized environments can provide significant infrastructure savings, many organizations seeking to expand their usage of virtualization encounter hardware design challenges that create complexities and increase costs.

An efficient virtualized environment blends servers, networking, storage, and backup. Any one bottleneck can drive inefficiency across other components, and those inefficiencies can be difficult to diagnose. Integrating solid-state storage, with its greater speed, reliability, and flexibility, can go a long way toward ensuring that virtualization can scale as needed, and in a cost-effective manner.
