Virtualization and Containers

Virtualization and Containers


With the help of virtualization technology, you may build useful IT services with resources that are often restricted to hardware. By dividing a physical machine’s capabilities among numerous users or environments, it enables you to utilize the entire machine’s capabilities.

By making a single piece of equipment behave like several, virtualization enables you to avoid buying additional hardware and equipment. Through virtualization, you may construct software-based (virtual) applications, servers, storage, networks, desktops, and more. It is the most effective strategy to lower IT costs while increasing your company’s productivity and agility.

Virtualization has numerous benefits for your organization from enhancing the IT agility, flexibility, and scalability of your company to enhancing the productivity of your staff to enable resource optimization.

Additional benefits include:

  • Reduced upfront hardware and continuing operating costs
  • Minimized or eliminated downtime
  • Increased IT productivity and responsiveness
  • Greater business continuity and disaster recovery response
  • Simplified data center management
  • Faster provisioning of applications and resources
  • Virtualization might not be the answer for every business, but it provides a beginning point and is a learning tool for anyone trying to optimize their IT strategies and get the most out of their current equipment.

Bi Line provides a wide range of Solutions for virtualization which include:

  • Server Virtualization

The practice of separating a physical server into several different and isolated virtual servers using software is known as server virtualization. Each virtual server can separately run its own operating system.

Key Benefits of Server Virtualization:

  • Higher server ability
  • Cheaper operating costs
  • Eliminate server complexity
  • Increased application performance
  • Deploy workload quicker
  • Network Virtualization

Network Virtualization (NV) refers to abstracting network resources that were traditionally delivered in hardware to software. NV can combine multiple physical networks to one virtual, software-based network, or it can divide one physical network into separate, independent virtual networks.Here are some of the key benefits of network


  • Reduce network provisioning time from weeks to minutes
  • Achieve greater operational efficiency by automating manual processes
  • Place and move workloads independently of the physical topology
  • Improve network security within the data center
  • Storage Virtualization

Multiple physical storage arrays from SANs are combined and presented as a single virtual storage device through storage virtualization, also known as software-defined storage or a virtual SAN.

Storage virtualization can easily be used to address the following top 7 challenges:

  • Vendor lock-in
  • Data migration across arrays
  • Scalability
  • Redundancy
  • Performance
  • High costs
  • Management
  • Desktop Virtualization and App Virtualization

Desktop and app virtualization is a software innovation that allows users to access resources from a remotely connected device by centrally hosting simulated desktops and programs in a data center or cloud.

Benefits of Desktop Virtualization:

  • Resource Utilization
  • Remote Workforce Enablement
  • Security


. Virtualization can be replaced/combined by the more portable method of containerization. This entails placing a program inside a container that do not have its own operating system. Therefore, containers use the host OS rather than installing an OS for each virtual machine.

Here are some of the most common reasons developers decide to containerize:

  • Portability
  • Efficiency
  • Agility
  • Faster delivery
  • Improved security
  • Faster app startup
  • Easier management
  • Flexibility
