Server virtualization uses software to divide a physical server into multiple compartments, or virtual servers. Each virtual server can run a unique operating system and applications without interfering with operations of other virtual servers.
This provides you with a number of benefits:
- Higher server uptime and reliability
- Cheaper operating costs
- Reduced equipment costs
- Lower support costs
- Increased application performance
- Faster workload deployment
Though it’s done a different way, desktop virtualization works on the same theory. End users actually perform their work on lower-cost terminals rather than on desktop computers that are expensive to purchase and even more costly to maintain. Terminals don’t require normal computer maintenance and last a very long time, so the savings can be significant. You can also reduce software licensing costs because all the applications are on a server. This also gives you much faster desktop re-generations should a problem occur with a virtual desktop session.
