One piece of hardware can be used to host a number of servers; and in situations like this, the servers are referred to as being virtual. In theory, any number of virtual servers can be implemented on the same piece of hardware; the only constraint being the amount of memory and processing resource available to be shared among each of the virtual systems.

Useful for smaller businesses requiring multiple servers, or larger businesses requiring fast recovery on error or dynamic expansion, Linux is ideally suited as the operating system of choice when deploying a virtual server solution.

The AlwaysLinux team have a number of years experience deploying virtual server environments in business, and can advise on all aspects of installation, management as well as being able to provide ongoing support.
