Virtualization Benefits: 5 Reasons to Transform Your Entire Data Center

Today’s virtualized data center represents everything that business is in the 21st century —  it’s faster, adaptable and efficient. When business goes up, you can scale it up. When things return to normal, you can scale it back. It’s flexible and agile — ready to take on unexpected demands with the greatest of ease. Thinking of virtualizing all or a portion of your data center? Here are a few critical virtualization benefits to consider:

  1. Flexibility That Can Save You Money

When you virtualize all or a part of your data center, much of your hardware will become obsolete. And when you use less hardware, you save money on electricity and maintenance. Expecting an increase of traffic? Just fire up a few virtual servers and power them down when they’re no longer needed.

  1. Easier Backups & Disaster Recovery

In a virtual environment you can do backups of your server and snapshots of your virtual machines. There are no tapes to bring offsite — just bring up the latest snapshots and continue business as usual. And if disaster ever strikes the data center, your virtual machines can be moved from one server to another and redeployed in a different location.

  1. No-Hassle Testing

A scalable cloud environment is ideal for developing and testing applications because you can add and remove servers as needed. Also, if you make a mistake, it isn’t the end of the world — just bring back the previous snapshot and continue where you left off. You can also keep the online testing environment private until your application is ready to be deployed.

  1. Improved Uptime

Most server virtualization platforms offer modern features that can help sustain operations or prevent outages. These features include live migration, fault tolerance, high availability, and distributed resource scheduling.

  1. Less Compatibility Issues

One of the major benefits of virtualization is that you can consolidate multiple virtual servers across fewer physical servers, and isolate applications that have compatibility issues. This can help extend the life of older applications and keep the entire data center up and running.
