The topic of virtualisation is a the forefront of many techies' minds. Virtualisation is a product that enables computers to use up fewer resources with increased output. These two benefits are obtained by running several operating systems on one server using special virtualisation software and a virtual machine monitor. The result is a server simultaneously running several operating systems and allowing each system access to its hardware components like the CPU, RAM, etc. The working of this product is explained below with Dell Server virtualization in mind.
First, a technician installs the virtualisation software on the hardware or in the operating system. This software contains something called a virtual machine monitor that basically coordinates the simultaneous execution of the different operating systems installed and the allocation of hardware resources. This can be seen practically in a Windows-based server running Apple’s operating system.
A subset of virtualisation is application virtualisation. Full application virtualisation requires a virtualisation layer. Application virtualisation layers replace part of the runtime environment normally provided by the operating system. The layer intercepts operations of virtualised applications and transparently redirects them to a virtualised location, often a single file thereby increasing the efficiency of the entire system as a whole.
There are many benefits that can be derived from utilizing Dell virtualisation. The first one is cost efficiency. A business will just have to buy one fairly powerful server-device and the virtualisation software to solve the computing needs of the entire business. This is opposed to the older setup of having full, independent computers for each employee complete with their own operating systems and software.
Another advantage is the decreased work load for available IT specialists. The business owner can either decide to let the excess workers go and increase his profits or use the freed up resources to expand his business.
