What is Virtualization and Why Should Your Company Virtualize?

Posted by Andy LaMar on Thu, Nov 07, 2013

It’s no secret that in today’s business world, we must be willing to use the latest technology if we want to maximize our growth potential and stay ahead of the competition. One such promising technology is virtualization.

You may have heard the term before, but you may not know what exactly virtualization is or the benefits it provides. And that’s why I am going to share a brief overview of this innovative technology that we here at Pepperl+Fuchs believe in.  

Virtualization gives you the ability to store all of your software and data on a single server outside of a hazardous area even when this server is connected to a thin client or group of thin clients that can be located inside a hazardous area. If a thin client in the hazardous area is damaged, your information is still secure and you can easily replace the damaged thin client. The illustration below shows a virtualized hardware system in which one thin client is outside the network, two thin clients are in good working condition inside the network, and another thin client is damaged with no adverse effect on the information it has gathered.
