Virtualizing a server infrastructure enables the partitioning of hardware resources and installation of different operational systems on a single physical server.
Among other features offered by such a solution, we would like to highlight the following:
- System for central management of farms of virtual servers
Enables centralized monitoring and management of the virtualization system.
- High availability of the system for the server virtualization
In case of irregularities in the work of one of the physical servers, all virtual servers, which are on the respective physical servers when the fault happens, are automatically transferred to the available physical servers.
- Dynamic load distribution
Functionality enabling an automatic load distribution among the physical servers in the system. In other words, if resources (CPU, Memory) on one physical server are overloaded, the aforementioned functionality will automatically prevent overload of the physical server by transferring one or more virtual servers to other less loaded physical servers.
- Migration of virtual servers on request
This functionality enables the manual migration of virtual servers from one physical server to another without turning off the operational systems.
- Image backup of virtual servers
Enables a backup of the complete image of the virtual server in an online mode, which makes the data restoration easier.
Benefits of Virtualization
By using the system for the virtualization of server infrastructure it is possible to achieve significant cost savings at several levels:
- Reducing the number of physical servers reduces the need for electrical power, space needed for the server, resources for the maintenance of the necessary air-condition in data centers, etc.
- Creating a unique environment for servers enables to achieve significant savings of server maintenance.
- Reducing management and administration costs via a central system for the monitoring of virtual servers.
- Reducing the time for the implementation of new server.
- Enabling a high level of system upgradability.
