Server Virtualization is the process of masking the server resources, including the details of the server like number and identity of physical server, operating system as well as processors from the users. The server administrator usually uses a software application to divide a single server into many virtual environments, which are isolated with each other. The virtual environments are sometimes termed as virtual private servers (VPS).
The three most commonly used approaches to server virtualization are:
1) Virtual machine Model
2) Para-Virtual Machine model
3) Virtualization at OS layer
Server Consolidation is considered as an approach towards the efficient use of the computer server resources, owned by a company. Its overall aim is to reduce the total number of servers as well as the server locations that an enterprise or a company requires. This particular concept has been developed to avoid the situation where the company has invested on numerous servers for different tasks, with most of them being underutilized and cannot justify the workload.
It is evident that although the consolidation practice can substantially increase the efficiency of the servers installed, it can also bring complex configurations of applications, servers and data. The overall approach can be a little complex and can be confusing for a customer. Thus to avoid this problem server virtualization can be used to mask or hide the details of the server resources, during the optimization of the resource sharing.
Virtualization of your IT infrastructure dramatically improves the efficiency and availability of resources and applications. Virtualization lets you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine, sharing the resources of that single computer across multiple environments therefore reducing hardware foot print and associated maintenance costs.
