If your business has multiple servers running multiple applications, you might want to consider “server virtualization,” which allows you to run multiple applications on a single server by creating a simulated computer environment for each application. Server virtualization has many advantages, from reducing electricity costs to providing disaster recovery protection and making applications more portable. By far the largest benefit though is server consolidation, which frees up space and reduces maintenance times.
Today there are plenty of vendors that offer different types of server virtualization (some even offer it for free). Whatever type you choose, make sure that your server has enough memory and power to handle the variety of applications you plan to run on it.
