VIRTUAL SERVER HOSTING
Virtualization is an abstraction layer that decouples the physical hardware from the operating system to deliver greater IT resource utilization and flexibility.
Virtualization allows multiple virtual machines, with heterogeneous operating systems to run in isolation, side-by-side on the same physical machine. Each virtual machine has its own set of virtual hardware (e.g., RAM, CPU, NIC, etc.) upon which an operating system and applications are loaded. The operating system sees a consistent, normalized set of hardware regardless of the actual physical hardware components.
Mitsol makes use of VMware's enterprise products to deliver state-of-the-art hosting solutions.
VMware is the world’s leading provider of virtualization solutions and services. Through a pioneering virtualization approach, VMware solutions separate the operating system and application software from the underlying hardware, delivering significant improvements in efficiency, availability, flexibility and manageability.
With a customer base of 20,000+ organizations of all sizes, VMware delivers technology designed to substantially lower IT costs, provide more flexibility in choosing operating systems, and offer a more automated and resilient systems infrastructure capable of responding to variable business demands.
VMware Virtualization vs. Traditional Hosting Solutions
|VMware vs. shared hosting and VPS
||VMware vs. Dedicated Hosting
Hosted VMware virtual machines are superior to shared hosting or a virtual private server (VPS) because they get their own dedicated operating system and are fully isolated from other virtual machines on the server hardware. As a result, customers no longer have to worry about having their hosted service overrun by another service on the same box.
Hosted virtual machines deliver better availability than dedicated servers because they can be migrated from one server to another with no downtime. Hosted virtual machines are also easier to scale without purchasing additional hardware, and more secure because each virtual machine is completely abstracted from the hardware and isolated from other virtual machines.
