Server Consolidation – VirtualizationCompanies today have to fulfil high requirements to ensure efficiency in system maintenance and rapid provision of new systems to guarantee business demands are met. Large database capacities result in huge server landscapes. These new challenges can be faced with server virtualisation.
The implementation of a virtualisation solution offers you the possibility to run, multiple and different operating systems and applications on one single hardware.
This does not only increase the resource use of the hardware, but rather decimates the infrastructure costs and increases the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).
It separates the hardware from the software, making the restoration of a service after a system crash or a disaster very simple and quick.
Virtual machines can also be transferred to another server when in operation without downtime. By doing so, the load can be balanced and planned hardware maintenance realised without any standstills.
