VIRTUALIZATION IN A DEDICATED ENVIRONMENT

Server Virtualization, Hosted and Managed by Certified Experts

Use server virtualization to cut hardware costs and accelerate deployment. Server virtualization divides a physical server into multiple virtual machines (VMs) by separating the compute environment from the hardware layer.

Because each VM can run its own operating system and applications, virtualization reduces the need for additional server infrastructure and provides a cost-effective way to deliver different types of services.

Our private clouds use server virtualization to host your servers and data.
