What is Data Center Virtualization?
Data center virtualization describes the design, development, and implementation of data centers using virtual hardware. The term data center virtualization covers a number of discrete virtualization categories: server virtualization, data virtualization, application virtualization, and network virtualization.
A traditional data center is composed of many different kinds of hardware, including switches, storage systems, routers, and servers. These components must all be properly connected and powered. As a result, a traditional data center may have significant space and power requirements.
Alternatively, each component and its connections can be virtually recreated on a small number of dedicated. Supervisory software creates virtual components as they are needed. A virtualized data center often requires less power and space than a traditional data center. It can also be simpler to automate and update than a traditional data center.
Data center virtualization vendors offer tools and software to create and host virtual data centers. They may also offer additional services and products that integrate with their data center virtualization solution.
