Back in the 1960s, when technology experts were trying to solve the problem of allowing multiple users to work on a single machine, they conceptualized Virtualization. While it didn’t find many takers back then, in the last decade, the practice of virtualization has become mainstream especially after being adopted in the cloud-based services. In simple words, virtualization is the creation of a virtual version of your system and/or resources. It allows the distribution of multiple tasks across various user environments and enables the server to run multiple tasks. This allows you to utilize the maximum potential of your machine and reduces hardware-related costs. A software called hypervisor creates and manages the virtual versions of the system – virtual machines (VMs). Each of these VMs run on the same physical server but work independently of each other. Cloud Hosting providers utilize the techniques of virtualization to offer web hosting services. So, how does virtualization benefit Cloud Hosted websites? Let’s find out:
Virtualization allows site owners to host their websites on Cloud Hosting platforms in a cost-efficient manner.
Traditionally, when websites were hosted on physical servers, an investment in physical resources was mandatory considering the current and anticipated requirements of the … Read MoreRead More
