Introduction

Hardware virtualisation or platform virtualisation 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.

Hardware virtualization or 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 Microsoft Windows may host a virtual machine that looks like a computer with the Ubuntu Linux operating system; Ubuntu-based software can be run on the virtual machine.

In hardware virtualization, thehost machine is the actual machine on which the virtualization takes place, and the guest machine is the virtual machine. The words host and guest are used to distinguish the software that runs on the physical machine from the software that runs on the virtual machine. The software orfirmware that creates a virtual machine on the host hardware is called ahypervisor or Virtual Machine Manager.

Take advantage of Northamber’s Configuration Services by requesting hypervisors are installed at time of order. Our qualified engineers can set up your PCs or notebooks to your bespoke specifications including: VMware, Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper V, Capacity Planner, Vision Core V Replicator and more…

 

Key Considerations

 Virtualization is a process or technique to create a virtual environment. The process of virtualization enables user to simultaneously run more than one operating systems on a single computer.

The technology also facilitates creation of a virtual version of multiple elements such as servers or network resources among others. Many organizations view the technology of virtualization as an important paradigm of IT environment that is designed to ensure self management in relation with utility computing.

Organizations embrace virtualization with an aim to minimize administration related chores and improve workloads as well as scalability. The role of virtualization can be summarized as the process of separating computing functionality of the given device from its underlying hardware

Features & Benefits

Virtualization is a combination of software and hardware engineering that creates Virtual Machines (VMs) - an abstraction of the computer hardware that allows a single machine to act as if it where many machines. ... With VMs: Multiple OSes, each running its own virtual machine, share hardware resources

Virtualization reduces the number of physical servers, reducing the energy required to power and cool them. Save time. It is also much faster to deploy a virtual machine than it is to deploy a new physical server. Reduce desktop management headaches
