Server virtualization software divides physical servers into multiple virtual segments that can be managed independently. Server virtualization products, commonly referred to as hypervisors, are used by organizations to partition dedicated servers into scalable virtual instances called virtual private servers (VPS). Virtual private servers created with server virtualization software can each host a unique operating system and be managed independently through an integrated hosting control panel. Organizations use server virtualization software to allocate server resources among virtual machines for workload optimization. Virtual machines created with server virtualization software are often more flexible and reliable to manage than unpartitioned servers. Organizations that house and manage servers internally implement server virtualization software to reduce strains on resources. Additionally, server virtualization software is commonly used by hosting service providers to offer VPS hosting services to their customers.

VMware ESXi is a purpose-built bare-metal hypervisor that installs directly onto a physical server. With direct access to and control of underlying resources, ESXi is more efficient than hosted architectures and can effectively partition hardware to increase consolidation ratios and cut costs for our customers.
Azure virtual machine scale set automatically increases or decreases the number of VM instances that run your application. This automated and elastic behavior reduces the management overhead to monitor and optimize the performance of your application.
Spin up a virtual machine, back up your SQL Server instance, and restore it into Azure. It’s that easy to reduce your capital investments and optimize operational expenses by migrating your on-premises SQL Server to the cloud.

Auto Scaling is a service to automatically adjust computing resources based on your volume of user requests. When demand for computing resources increase, Auto Scaling automatically adds ECS instances to serve additional user requests, or alternatively removes instances in the case of decreased user requests.

UCS Virtual Machine Manager (UVMM) is an easy-to-use and cost-efficient management tool to virtualize IT infrastructures and centrally manage your (hybrid) cloud environments. Using the hypervisor KVM as the underlying virtualization technology, UVMM lets you create, manage and remove virtualized servers and machines from any environment (Microsoft Windows, UCS and other Linux distributions). UVMM is an integrated administrative tool, which you can access via the management system of our server operating and management solution Univention Corporate Server (UCS). It manages all virtualized resources including OpenStack and Amazon EC2-based cloud resources via a a modern and integral web interface. Overview of important functions: Virtualization of Microsoft Windows, UCS and other Linux distros; High degree of flexibility with virtualization technology KVM thanks to standardized virtualization interface Libvirt; Next to local virtualization servers, UVMM also manages cloud computing environments based on OpenStack or Amazon EC2. This allows the out-of-the-box setup of hybrid cloud scenarios with UCS. Comprehensive functions for the creation and central administration of virtual instances and hard drives, such as the starting, stopping, pausing, deleting, migrating and cloning of virtual systems; Integral, standardized administration interface for the virtualization technology KVM; Status overviews for physical servers and virtual instances at a glance: the administrator receives an overview of the resource utilization of the physical servers and the available virtual instances on them (CPU and memory utilization); Quick set-up of new virtual instances using pre-configured, adaptable profiles; Central administration of hard drive images; Migration of running virtual instances from one physical server to another; Central administration of clustered servers; Support of paravirtualization for more efficient hardware utilization.
