In computing, virtualization refers to the act of creating a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, including virtual computer hardware platforms, storage devices, and computer network resources.
JEROME TECHNOLOGY provides services to setup virtualization platforms for your server environment. We offer two types of platform virtualization; namely hypervisors and the newer containerization technology.
Platform virtualization refers to the creation of a virtual machine that acts like a real computer with an operating system. Software executed on these virtual machines is separated from the underlying hardware resources. For example, a computer that is running Linux operating system may host a virtual machine that looks like a computer with several Windows Server operating systems.
The benefits of using a virtualized platform for hosting servers are endless. Less heat buildup, reduced hardware footprint, reduced costs, fast deployment, easier to backup, managed disaster recovery and many more.
With a move to virtual machines, you are that much closer to enjoying a full-blown cloud environment. You may even reach the point where you can deploy VMs to and from your server to create a powerful cloud-based infrastructure. But beyond the actual virtual machines, that virtualized technology gets you closer to a cloud-based mindset, making the migration all the more easy.
Experience The Benefits
Virtual machines offer a powerful way to help relieve the typical headaches that plague administrators day in and day out. If you haven’t already begun to make use of virtualization in your data center, it’s time you start. Even if you migrate only a simple file server to virtualized technology, you’ll quickly see the benefits — and eventually, you may want your entire data center virtualized.
