Hardware Virtualization Technology and Process
Are two computers better than one? Well, that might not be entirely true. What if that one computer has four virtual machines inside of it?
This is the premise of hardware virtualization as a form of extending the software capabilities of your team’s existing hardware resources.
Hardware virtualization, or “HW virtualization,” allows you to get the most of your company’s computing resources by consolidating your hardware into fewer machines.
Instead of having multiple workstations that all run different operating systems, it’s feasible to create multiple “virtual” machines within one computer that can all serve a different purpose.
At Emerald City Solutions, hardware virtualization is just one of the many IT solutions that we can provide. Our other services include:
Our top priority is to help keep your organization running at maximum efficiency from both a performance and operating cost perspective.
Before we can dive further into hardware virtualization and show you how you can get the most out of your existing computing resources by consolidating your hardware, let’s stop and go through a quick definition of what hardware virtualization is.
What is Hardware Virtualization?
Hardware virtualization works by leveraging a physical that hosts other virtual machines. These machines are effectively simulated computer environments where guest software can be run.
Such software can range from individual applications to entire operating systems. While the software will be run as though utilizing its own hardware, this hardware is not shared in the true sense. The physical hardware’s processing capabilities are shared among the various virtual machines running within it.
How Does Hardware Virtualization Work?
There are multiple different approaches that IT professionals can take to help their organizations improve costs and efficiency.
Many professional institutions have begun to move major components of their business computing to the cloud. Removing physical machines and leveraging cloud computing is a more modern process to virtualize hardware.
In choosing to virtualize your company’s existing computing infrastructure, you are presented with an opportunity to substantially decrease your enterprise’s energy and maintenance costs.
Our Approach to Hardware Virtualization
Emerald City Solutions approaches hardware virtualization with years of proficiency in diagnosing the condition of your technological system and presenting sustainable IT roadmaps that are custom-tailored to your company’s needs.
These solutions are built upon the fact that virtualized computer hardware presents a superior workflow for the money.
Most of the time, in standalone PCs, computing resources largely go to waste. By combining all of the machines that your organization uses, and adding up the amount of processing power that goes unused, it’s easy to see how substantial the waste really is.
Emerald City Solutions’ hardware virtualization process equips you to host numerous computational environments in one incidence, which allows you to substantially cut down on your energy and maintenance costs overall.
By transitioning from a hardware environment to a cloud computing environment, you’re able to simulate the physical computer along with all of its computing capabilities.
Numerous computing resources can reside on a single server, which consolidates your computer infrastructure considerably.
This comes with countless benefits:
- Cut down on physical space of hardware
- Maximize the computing power of each machine
- Decrease the total cost of energy immediately
- Remove the need for expensive hardware upgrades at regular intervals
- Maximize the security protocol in each machine
- Enable flexible and convenient remote management of virtual machines
- Eliminate the cost of physical hardware and hardware maintenance
- SO much more
By leveraging our virtualization hardware, you will find that your organization’s productivity experiences an immediate boost.
Our hardware virtualization technology will virtualize your data, allowing your organization to see all of the listed benefits of consolidating your IT infrastructure.
This quickly demonstrates an impact on your company’s bottom line and improves output tremendously.
Flexible Hardware Virtualization Solutions for Your Business
We have engineered our solutions to be able to provide organizations of all shapes and sizes with scalable virtualization options for their computing hardware.
Small and mid-sized businesses in the state of Washington that are interested in hardware virtualization have lots of options to choose from.
At Emerald City Solutions, our technology experts are versed and studied in the industry best practices for supplying your business with a computing infrastructure that is maximally efficient, affordable, and easy to maintain.
How our Virtualization Process Works
Every HW virtualization process begins by tailoring a solution that will work best for your company. Typically, these virtualization options look like the following.
1. Full Virtualization
A full virtualization is the ideal scenario when a computer system is intended to be shared among multiple users. This process isolates users onto a single system and hosts the emulation of new hardware in order to maximize the reliability of the system.
2. Partial Virtualization
A partial hardware virtualization is a good in-between approach that allows us to easily implement fully-featured virtual machines to support specific software applications. In doing so, you can get the best of both worlds from your existing hardware along with the virtual instances ran within it.
A paravirtualization is a virtualization that is a performance enhancer for existing paravirtualized hardware. This is the option when you really want to put the pedal to the metal and get the absolute maximum out of your hardware.
With so many different options available, Emerald City Solutions is able to provide a solution for your company, regardless of what your hardware virtualization needs may be.
