Server virtualization refers to multiple operating systems on a single computer. While a single operating
system is installed in most computers, server virtualization software enables a computer to operate on
number of operating systems, offering hosted systems access to a computer’s hardware, RAM, CPU and
storage, etc. Since every virtual system is a separate entity if one crashes the others are not affected.


An enterprise’s infrastructure can be a complex ecosystem with multiple servers, operating systems and
other devices interacting. It is difficult to support and manage such critical technology as the overall
process is very time consuming. Use of virtualization software will assist you in desktop and server
installation and management, minimizing cost and speeding up routine task and maximize hardware
utilization.


Furthermore, virtualization software utilities offered by service providers specializing in virtual appliance
management infrastructure can be configured, installed and quickly made fully-functional quickly. This
helps to control any configuration alteration to virtual servers in data centers and cloud infrastructures.
The management software is equipped with fully automated discovery features that help to set up a
physical, logical and virtual map of resources which are stored in the trusted configuration repository. This
works along with a management and configuration interface which streamlines administration and is
utilized to extract vital information from the repository for variety of reports for Cloud and Data center
operations and provide additional value including:-


    ● User access to the software services is safely tied to privileged, roles and user authentication.
         The software can offer logging and version changes within the servers. This assists to establish
         who made the modification, the time when it was made as well as the reason for the same. It can
         lock down the network to protect unauthorized modifications.
    ● The virtualization software is able to implement real-time, policy based solutions to control
         application and server changes. It also ensures highest possible accessibility and responsiveness
         to business requirements.
    ● The virtualization software supports intelligent agents across multiple virtual platforms including
         physical ESX-class hosts along with individual virtual machines. The agents have modest
         footprints and are executed manually or automatically to offer secure encrypted interaction
         between the virtual/physical appliance and the agent executed on the target machine.
Finally, advanced virtualization software allows operations to manage and administer change effortlessly
in virtual and physical environments all through servers. The same is possible through geographic
locations. It offers closed loop control for compliance processes and assists in real time audits of
regulatory, operational and safety policies.
