Computer speed and processing power have increased greatly over the years – but have they increased at the same rate as your computing needs?
Studies have shown that, for physical servers, the majority of time they are only using approximately 3% of their processing capacity. And whilst this my spike significantly during peak loads, the peak loads for all your systems most likely do not coincide.
The solution to this wasted capacity is virtual computing – the ability to run multiple virtual computers on a single (or small group) of computer hardware. Each virtual system operates independently of the others, and there is no need to change any of your business applications. You can even run different operating systems, or different versions of the same one, on the same computer hardware.
With advanced configurations, you can even balance you environment over multiple computers, and move virtual computers between hardware without shutting them down – your users will never know it’s happened!
