Not only that, but it delivers cost savings on on-going maintenance costs and energy consumption.
Like many IT solutions, server virtualisation originally came about as a way of reducing capital expenditure and investment required for the ‘traditional’ approach of installing a separate physical server for each server role.
As a result, server virtualisation overcomes the need for multiple physical servers (and hence the capex cost) by housing multiple virtual servers on one physical server where they can efficiently run multiple different operating systems in parallel.
The business case is all about reducing up front and ongoing costs improving resource utilisation, reducing requirements for physical space, energy and cooling requirements and improving business flexibility.
