Virtualization software solves the problem by enabling several operating systems and applications to run on one physical server or “host.” Each self-contained virtual machine (VM) is isolated from the others, and uses as much of the host’s computing resources as it requires. Adopting virtualisation means that an organisation can reap the benefit of utilising every single physical ‘host’ to its maximum capacity thus reducing hardware requirement and capital expenditure.
1. Network Virtualisation – with Software Defined Networking (SDN), virtualisation principles are applied to network resources, abstracting, pooling and automating them to transcend the limitations of rigid physical architecture.
2. Virtual Storage Attached Network (SAN) – VSAN allows enterprise to pool their storage capabilities and to instantly and automatically provision VM Storage via simple policies driven by the VM.
