What is virtualization
Advantages of virtualization
Reduce workload on staff It is a way easier to maintain several virtual servers than maintaining the same amount of dedicated servers. Virtual servers are cheaper to rent than dedicated ones, so they can also cut your costs.
Increase the speed and flexibility You don’t need to configure hardware and network to deploy a virtual server. You can create and delete it with a few clicks. It saves a lot of time on launching new services or creating a testing environment.
Make services more reliable When you run two different services on independent virtual machines, they don’t affect each other. If one service causes an OS crash or is hacked — the other service will continue working as usual.
