Virtualization

How Virtualization is Transforming IT Infrastructure

Virtualization is rapidly transforming IT Infrastructure and fundamentally changing the way that businesses employ technology. Essentially, one or more of the following five kinds of virtualization — employed independently or in combination — reduces your dependency on physical computing devices:

  • Hardware virtualization allows more than one operating system to simultaneously interact with one set of hardware.
  • Operating system virtualization, enables multiple operating system instances that leverage the same source to consume fewer resources.
  • Network virtualization enables one physical network to be broken into multiple virtual networks, or for using software to virtually network machines without the use of traditional network devices.

Virtualization dramatically improves the efficiency and availability of your resources and applications. Through The Consult/ix Group's Virtualization solutions, you can employ your expensive IT resources to respond to business priorities faster and more efficiently. An effective virtualization strategy requires a balanced understanding of the current IT environment, a consideration of the impact of data center consolidation beyond the server layer, and a deep understanding of how IT serves a particular business.
