What’s the buzz around server virtualization, can I use it and will I save money?
Virtualization essentially lets one server do the job of multiple servers by sharing the resources of that single server across multiple environments. Virtual servers and virtual desktops let you host multiple operating systems and multiple business applications locally and in remote locations, freeing you from physical and geographical limitations. Almost all Small and Medium businesses can increase server and data storage utilization, reducing costs of equipment, power, cooling, and real estate. Virtualization-powered consolidation enables businesses to decommission older systems that are expensive to support and prone to failure, and replaces several systems with a single newer, more supportable, less power-hungry system.
By combining servers and storage into resource pools that can be apportioned to the applications with the highest business need, IT operations can be aligned to changing demand and business priorities. With some Citrix products, running virtual machines can be migrated to new servers with no service interruption, allowing essential workloads to get needed resources, enabling zero-downtime maintenance and better application virtualization.
