Server virtualization allows companies to use a software layer to let one physical computing server run multiple virtual machines. Among the many advantages, server virtualization allows manufacturing companies to save money by consolidating a number of applications on the same physical server.

In fact, it’s not uncommon to be dealing with a lifecycle of seven years and up, so stability and risk mitigation are a must.
