Virtualization

Having a virtualized environment means you are running ‘virtual servers’ on a physical host server. This allows you to save on having lots of various degrading hardware and have a cleaner server environment. There are various different hardware setups you can have. The main ‘Host Server OS’ is usually Windows ‘Hyper-V’ or VMWare ‘ESXi’. There are other rivals but these are the 2 main ones in use. Below is a few things we can offer.
