Running a successful business requires the adoption of multiple business applications. Some of them perform best on Apple OS or Windows operating system while others are available only on Linux. Having multiple physical servers to run various business apps is both expensive and inefficient.
Virtualization technology solves the problem by allowing a single physical server to run multiple operating systems that support different enterprise-grade software platforms in a virtual environment. Your North or South Carolina business thus benefits from economy of scale by virtualization of any component of your IT environment: servers, data storage, networks, and software applications. We call these virtualized environments “virtual machines.”
Some virtual machines support only a specific service, application, or IT infrastructure layer while William Ives Consulting can provide virtualization services at any level.
Five Essential Characteristics of Virtual Machines

But virtualization also offers techniques such as clustering, portioning, and workload management that enable businesses to configure servers in a way to dynamically meet the changing demand for computing resources.
Virtualization allows any business to do more with less and utilize available server capacity to the utmost. Enterprise virtualization solutions combine the available central processor units (CPUs), memory, network hardware, data storage, and applications into blended pools of computing resources.
