What is Server Virtualisation
Server virtualisation is a method of partitioning a physical server into multiple 'virtual' servers.
Each virtual server has the appearance and capabilities of a server running on its own dedicated machine and can run its own operating system and business applications.
Traditionally a single physical server could run only a single operating system. Consequently, for an organisation to run it's many business applications many physical servers were required.
Server virtualisation results in several significant benefits including:
- Reduced hardware costs as less physical servers are required
- Reduced and simpler ongoing maintenance
- Increased hardware flexibility and responsiveness
- Increased application availability, business continuity and disaster recovery opportunities.
What is Desktop Virtualisation
Desktop virtualisation (or virtual desktop infrastructure, VDI) involves hosting a centrally managed 'virtual' desktop for each user connected to the network.
The user experience is intended to be identical to that of a standard PC, but from a more basic client device. The user can be located in the same offce or remotely.
Many significant benefits result, including:
- Accelerated delivery of desktops to office workers anywhere
- Greatly reduced downtime in the event of hardware failtures
- Significant reduction in the cost of new application deployment
- Stronger data protection control
- Reduced cost of desktop ownership
- Potential to exente the PC refresh cycle
- Ability to access the users's desktop environment from any PC (including the employee's home PC)
- Existing desktop-like performance.
