A server virtualization allows the installation of multiple (virtual) servers on one physical machine. This means that you are running several server systems simultaneously on one server hardware. The primary advantages of such virtualization are:

  • Reduce cost and more efficient usage of hardware.

    Acquisition, operating and maintenance cost are considerable lower than in a strictly physical server environment.Server consolidation through virtualization
  • Hardware independence

    A virtual server can be run on any hardware. When a physical server fails, a corresponding virtual server can be run on a different, non-identical servers without adjustments. Hardware Abstraction through virtualization
  • High Availability

    Using virtualization high-availability environments can be realized. In the event of a complete failure of a server host, the virtual servers are automatically started on another machine within minutes. Availability through virtualization

For the server virtualization Bytes & more uses the reference products VMWare and Hyper-V. The selection of software and the related license costs depend solely on the customer's requirements. Despite the many advantages, virtualization also represents high risks associated with an uncoordinated approach. For this reason you should only approach this with a partner with a strong know-how.
