These days, virtualization is a very hot topic among businesses in Charlotte and beyond, and it’s something our team of IT experts are implementing quite frequently for our clients. To understand the benefits of virtualization, it’s important to have a basic understanding of what virtualization is.
Many businesses have the need for multiple servers. Before virtualization, for example, a Charlotte business needing 3 servers would have to purchase 3 physical servers. But virtualization allows for these 3 servers to run on a single physical server. Thus, rather than purchasing 3 separate, physical servers, virtualization allows your business to only purchase one physical server that can then simulate 3 servers with the help of a VPS hosting company.
As you may imagine, very powerful tech specifications are required of this one server, but the hardware costs of one powerful server are significantly less than 3 individual servers. At Sterling Technology Solutions, we utilize software by VMWare & Hyper-V for server virtualization with our Charlotte businesses. VMWare & Hyper-V are the leading provider of virtualization services in Charlotte and beyond. Through virtualization, we’re helping small to mid size Charlotte businesses save on hardware costs, while better supporting their servers remotely.
