Virtualization creates an abstract software layer over the physical hardware, essentially creating a virtual computing system, known as a virtual machine (VM). Organizations employ virtualization management to run multiple virtual computers, operating systems, and applications on a single physical server.
Administrative tasks can be performed more easily using virtual servers instead of physical ones. Modern virtualization management software provides advanced management functions that automate administrative tasks and reduce the overall operational burden on virtualized IT resources, providing a greater return on a company’s investment.
Virtualization management is an eco-friendly approach to IT, reducing power consumption and minimizing our carbon footprint. Power savings make it cheaper to maintain servers and data centers.
