Server virtualisation provides improved efficiency, productivity and profitability. Virtualisation is fast emerging as a game-changing mainstream technology in the business computing space.
SybaCloud is a technology used for the partitioning of one physical server into multiple virtual servers. Each of these virtual servers can run its own operating system and applications and perform as an individual server. This makes it possible to consolidate multiple servers for use by multiple business divisions.
Server consolidation with virtualisation reduces the cost of hardware, maintenance, power, and air conditioning. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is lowered by increasing the efficiency of server resources, operational changes and virtualisation-specific features.
Due to improved server performance, some servers have high resource-usage rates but most are often underutilized in these instances. Virtualisation can eliminate such ineffective use of hardware resources thus optimizing resources throughout the server environment. Furthermore, servers previously managed by each business division can be centrally managed by a single administrator. Operation management costs are greatly reduced by server consolidation and virtualisation.
Partitioning and isolation of existing servers, enables simple and safe server consolidation. The server consolidation process greatly reduces the number of physical servers required in operation. This alone brings benefits such as reduced floor space, power consumption and air conditioning costs.
It is important to note that even though the number of physical servers is greatly reduced, the number of virtual servers to be managed does not change. When virtualizing servers, the installation of operation management tools, or the engagement of external server management support for efficient server management, is recommended.
One of the most compelling and beneficial features of virtualized servers (not available in physical server environments) is live migration.
Live migration allows for virtual servers to be migrated to another physical server independent of hardware. Live migration offers significant benefit in the sense of business continuity (e.g. disaster recovery in the event of physical machine failure) as well as the ability to perform physical hardware maintenance on the hardware platform with minimal impact on the end user.
The use of a server consumes 0.251 kilowatts / h and rejects 181.148 kg of carbon into the atmosphere each year (the equivalent of more than 1000km by a commercial aircraft).
With Sybaweb and it’s SybaCloud Server, you can reduce your carbon emissions because we estimate that you can integrate five virtual servers within one physical server, with a full efficiency.
And what is good for the planet is good for your finances. You also reduce your energy costs by 5 if you migrate to our SybaCloud Servers.
