Virtualization has become one of the major technological advancements in the 21st century.

This is basically the technology that revolutionized the IT sector by delivering more server storage space and processing power on the back end than ever before. In order to function with a specific purpose, virtualization requires resources like physical hardware. This could then be linked to another server site, an operating system (OS), or a desktop environment.

Virtualization uses the power of technology to empower businesses of all sizes to scale up without limitations!

What are the different virtulization types

There are different virtualization types based on the primary function of the particular technology. In these next few sections, we’re discussing briefly the three main types of virtualization that we see in the business world- server, storage, and desktop virtualizations.

Server

This is the server technology that divides different virtual instances within a single physical location. The idea behind server virtualization is that owners can make their virtual server work as a separate instance with its own set-up and operating capacity. Server virtualization is used in cloud computing for streamlining the existing infrastructure for many different tasks at a time and making better use of the hardware resources.

Storage

This is a cloud solution that uses multiple server devices for the purpose of having a single storage repository. Depending on the number of physical resources used for storage virtualization, cloud vendors can create big scalable solutions for their clients. IT-Fabrik is a cloud provider that persistently invests in expanding our storage virtualization technology for delivering better backup, storage, and recovery functions to our clients.

Desktop

In previous blog posts, we have already discussed in greater detail what desktop virtualization technology is and the many benefits from it. Desktop virtualization technology, like the other two server virtualizations, is a desktop environment that is separated from the physical server machines. The most important advantage of outsourcing your virtual desktop solution is cutting down the costs of managing and maintaining your own desktop environment.

Benefits

There are a number of practical benefits to virtualization, one of the main ones being lower operating costs. We have already mentioned that making the most of your server space is creating an efficient virtualization model that operates at maximum capacity. This reduces the cost of running server technology without utilizing most of the existing infrastructure.

Another great benefit to virtualization technologies is quick provisioning. Having highly efficient desktop virtualization can let you deploy as many desktop workstations as you want, at the flick of a switch.

Virtualization gives businesses high availability by minimizing their downtime during server maintenance and disruptions. Thanks to some of the tools of virtualization, data can be kept safe and operation can resume promptly, or stay uninterrupted at all times.
