Hardware virtualisation is an easy way to maximise the use of your existing hardware, therefore reducing the need of investment in additional infrastructure.
Hardware virtualisation refers to the creation of virtual (rather than actual) machines that act like real computers with independent operating systems. Software executed on a virtual machine is separated from the underlying hardware resources.
For example, space on a physical server can be segregated to allow one or more virtual machines. These virtual machines can then be dedicated to perform a specific function, such as running an exchange server for hosted email, or to run a database server.
In these instances, the main server processes run alongside the virtualised processes, unimpeded by one another, but utilising the same hardware in an efficient use of physical resources.
