A Glossary


Virtualization is the process of creating a virtual version of a computer system or network resources, such as servers, storage devices, and network resources. It allows multiple operating systems and applications to run on the same physical hardware simultaneously, thereby increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

Virtualization affects managed IT services in a number of ways. For example, it allows for better resource utilization, as multiple virtual machines can run on a single physical server, reducing the number of physical servers required. This can result in cost savings for businesses, as well as reduced power consumption and maintenance costs.

Virtualization can also improve disaster recovery capabilities by allowing for quick and easy replication of virtual machines to backup locations, ensuring business continuity in the event of a disaster. Additionally, virtualization can enable easier scalability, as resources can be allocated as needed to support business growth.

Overall, virtualization can significantly improve the efficiency, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness of managed IT services.
