Virtualisation is a very hot topic in IT at the moment. The main benefit of virtualisation is to increase utilisation of your physical hardware. There are in fact many different types of Virtualisation - from Platform Virtualisation (where the operating system is separated from the physical hardware using a HyperVisor) to Desktop Virtualisation (VDI or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) where client PCs are abstracted into virtual machines for fine grained management and support.

Most businesses will benefit from some form of virtualisation once their requirements cross a certain threshold - specifically the need for multiple servers at a single site. Server virtualisation allows you to consolidate multiple physical servers onto one or more servers, typically reducing your server count by up to 80%. Moving to a virtualised server environment usually entails re-examining your general network storage and backup systems as Server Virtualisation works best with virtualised storage typically delivered throug a SAN (Storage Area Network).
