In essence, virtualization lets you transform hardware into software. Software is used to transform or “virtualize” the hardware resources of a server – including the CPU, RAM, hard disk and network controller - to create a fully functional virtual machine that can run its own operating system and applications just a like a “real” computer.
Multiple virtual machines share hardware resources without interfering with each other so you can safely run several operating systems and applications at the same time on a single computer.
TEAM’s virtualized dedicated server is based on VMware’s ESX Server platform. Each customer has a server dedicated to their business and can choose the number of virtual machines to run.
Easy to Deploy
Virtualized server technologies make it possible to provision a new server quickly without investing in new hardware. Different operating systems can be set up on the same virtual machine without the need for additional hardware. TEAM offers the choice of using Windows 2003, Windows 2008 or RedHat Linux. You can add virtual machines as needed on a month-by-month basis.
Many physical servers are underutilized with only one or two applications running at a time. Virtualization enables you to optimize your server utilization. Server optimization means less hardware and less maintenance – reducing your overall costs. You save on hardware, licesing and operating costs.
Virtualized environments can be complex to manage in-house at the system adminstration level, requiring time and a significant level of expertise and certification. TEAM takes care of managing the VMware ESX software for you.
