Virtualization allows multiple logical or application processes to work on a single physical device, sharing in a secure and reliable way hardware resources between the various virtual environments that exist on it. Today, virtualization includes terms such as server virtualization, computer virtualization, desktop virtualization, application virtualization, and in the broadest sense – cloud computing.

Some of the advantages in the business brought by virtualization technologies are:

  • Reduced capital and operating costs

  • Minimized or eliminated downtime

  • Increased IT productivity, efficiency, agility and responsiveness

  • Faster provisioning of applications and resources

  • Greater business continuity and disaster recovery

  • Simplified data center management

BCC Services offers all types of virtualization, and a combination of these solutions according to user requirements:

Server Virtualization

Enables multiple logical servers (guests) to exist on one physical server (host). In doing so, it is possible to clone and copy, migrate, save, assign different amounts of available resources to individual virtual servers, all under the supervision of an additional layer or level that separates physically from the logical part, called hypervisor.

Desktop virtualization

Enables centralized management of desktop computers. In doing so, desktop operating systems are actually virtual machines on the server, which can be centralized, stored, upgraded, copied. Day-to-day operations of maintenance and deployment of desktop computers and related business applications become significantly easier. Desktop virtualization is a logical continuation of server virtualization.

Application virtualization

enables centralized application management, where the application is actually executed on the server or streamed to the user’s device, regardless of the location and device used by the end user.

The implementation, maintenance, storage, protection, and upgrading of user applications takes place on the virtual application server instead of on individual end-user computers.

Storage Virtualization

Multiple physical storage devices are grouped together, which then appear as a single storage device. This provides various advantages such as homogenization of storage across storage devices of multiple capacity and speeds, reduced downtime, load balancing and better optimization of performance and speed. Partitioning your hard drive into multiple partitions is an example of this virtualization.

Network Virtualization

in network virtualization, multiple sub-networks can be created on the same physical network, which may or may not is authorized to communicate with each other. This enables restriction of file movement across networks and enhances security, and allows better monitoring and identification of data usage which lets the network administrator’s scale up the network appropriately.

It also increases reliability as a disruption in one network doesn’t affect other networks, and the diagnosis is easier.
