Types of Virtualization
Most servers operate at less than 15 percent of capacity, leading to server sprawl and complexity.
Server virtualization addresses these inefficiencies by allowing multiple operating systems to run on a single physical server as virtual machines, each with access to the underlying server's computing resources.
The next step is to aggregate a server cluster into a single consolidated resource – which improves overall efficiency and reduces cost.
Server virtualization also enables faster workload deployment, increased application performance, and higher availability.
Network virtualization is the complete reproduction of a physical network in software. Applications run on the virtual network exactly the same as if on a physical network.
Network virtualization presents logical networking devices and services—logical ports, switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers, VPNs and more—to connected workloads.
Virtual networks offer the same features and guarantees of a physical network with the operational benefits and hardware independence of virtualization.
Deploying desktops as a managed service gives you the opportunity to respond quicker to changing needs and opportunities.
You can reduce costs and increase service by quickly and easily delivering virtualized desktops and applications to branch offices, outsourced and offshore employees and mobile workers on iPad and Android tablets.
