What Is Server Virtualization?

Server virtualization allows users to maximize physical resources in the most efficient way possible. Server virtualization functions by running multiple, independent, virtual operating systems on a single computer.

Server virtualization transforms hardware into software, creating a virtual hardware resource on an x86-based server that incorporates CPU, RAM and hard drives.

What Does a Server Virtualization Configuration Look Like?
A thin virtualization layer partitions the physical server so you can run multiple servers simultaneously on a single server. The computing resources of the physical server are pooled and used by the virtual servers in a controlled manner. The virtual servers are isolated from the other virtual servers on the systems leaving them unaffected by the actions of the other virtual servers.
