One of the major cost factors in modern server farms is the power required for operation. Virtualization is an effective instrument to consolidate physical hosts and thereby reduce costs as well as CO2 emissions. The virtualization of the host environments can also substantially improve flexibility, scalability and availability.
Low resource consumption and high flexibility
Virtual servers, also referred to as vServer, are systems which operate independently of each other on a physical server. They share the computing power of the physical server and can be moved quickly and flexibly if more computing power is required.
- Advantages of server virtualization
- Dovetailing with the overall concept
mpex operates proprietary and generic virtualization environments. Virtualized systems can generally be cloned or migrated with little effort and are an important component in the overall cluster in conjunction with the proper data storage.
- Rapid response options
If bottlenecks are foreseen, the available capacity can be expanded quickly. A typical application would be an online shop that is frequented at a higher rate during Christmas. The management of the increased number of visitors can be supported with short-term capacity. The costs are scaled along with the project and therefore decrease after the high-load phase.
