Benefits of Server Virtualization •

Virtual servers reduce your costs.Virtualization causes you to buy less hardware thereby saving you money. Also the operating costs are reduced with virtualization.

Virtualization makes the servers stable and reduces downtimes considerably thereby making servers and the websites hosted on them available at all times. It ensures high availability and delivers prompt disaster recovery thereby offering you business continuity.

Virtualization of servers lets you utilize the resources to the fullest. With automation and better utilization of available resources, virtualization increases the efficiency of the server.

Another benefit of server virtualization is that it helps save space in your data centers as the number of physical servers is much less than the number of servers that are being used.
