Benefits Of Server Virtualization
Server virtualization is a method by which software is utilized to partition a single physical server into multiple computers that are known as virtual machines. To the user, the virtual environment appears as if it is its own standalone piece of hardware. In data centers and IT departments, virtualization is utilized to better utilize server resources. In general, a physical server only uses 20 percent of its capacity. By hosting several virtual machines on one physical server it’s possible to improve hardware utilization upwards of 80 percent. For IT managers and data centers, this also means reducing hardware costs upfront, and reduced TCO in the long run.
However, in a hosting environment, shared hosting, where a number of different web sites are hosted on one single physical server, is the most typical type of deployment. form of website hosting. Although shared hosting provides many of the benefits of virtualization, and in some sense may be regarded as a specialized type of virtualization, an even better option is the deployment of what is known as a Virtual Private Server, or VPS.
