What is a Virtual Machine? 

A virtual machine can be defined as software implementation of a hardware-like architecture that executes predefined instructions in a way like a physical central processing unit (CPU). Virtual machines are used to create a cross-platform computing environment that loads and runs on computers without any dependency on their underlying operating systems and CPUs.

Business Benefits of Virtual Machines

  1. Minimizes hardware costs
  2. Guarantees faster system provisioning and deployment
  3. Improves crisis management and disaster recovery
  4. Enhances staff productivity
