When you hear “virtual systems” What does your mind think of? For many, virtualization sounds like a complex, expensive technology which is not affordable for small businesses. However, with options such as Oracle’s VirtualBox and VMware Workstation available, this powerful technology is accessible for any business looking to boost their efficiency in IT.

Virtualization is a process that transforms hardware resources into digital components that can be provided to users at any time. Virtual Machines is the shorthand for these virtual components. When a VM is constructed, it’s essentially an exact copy of an existing computer configuration. This means that when the new employee comes in, they’ll be able to immediately begin working on a machine that’s identical to their predecessor. This greatly eases the process of the process of integrating a new team member and ensures that everyone has access to software and applications that they need to do their job.

Another benefit of a VM is that it can run different operating systems. An employee may have an Mac but need software that only runs on Windows. A VM lets them run this software on the Mac without having it installed separately. Software developers also have to test updates in different environments. Comparing the cost and time of conducting these tests on different physical devices to running them on a VM could be an effective way to save money.

Additionally you can also use a VM can be used to store backup and data files. There are many benefits of this approach, such as cutting costs in disaster recovery, and facilitating storage management. It is possible to benefit from the built-in buffering capability of cloud-based VM like HPE GreenLake. This allows you to avoid investing in additional hardware for your datacenter as well as remote offices.
