Virtualization is the process of creating a software-based, or virtual, representation of something, such as such as virtual applications, servers, storage and networks. It is the process by which one computer hosts the appearance of many virtual resources. Virtualization is used to improve IT throughput and costs by using physical resources as a pool from which virtual resources can be allocated. It is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility for all size businesses.
Nevertheless, many organizations are able to virtualize just 75% to 85% of their workloads. Legacy architectures and operational challenges limit their ability to achieve 100% virtualization. Rahi Systems, with our strengths in web-scale, service provider environments, can help enterprises overcome these limitations and maximize the benefits of virtualization.
We can also help you develop a server consolidation strategy designed to reduce data center overhead while ensuring that your compute infrastructure meets your growing business needs. The net result is increased service levels at lower costs.

Apps & Desktop Virtualization
Desktop and app virtualization is a software technology that publishes end user desktops and applications in a datacenter that is on-premises or in the cloud and renders it on endpoint devices. Enable end users to securely access corporate resources and work anytime, anywhere, on any device. A streamlined, modern approach to desktop virtualization allows your organization to deliver, protect and manage desktops and apps while containing costs.
Server virtualization is the process of dividing a physical server into multiple unique and isolated virtual servers by means of a software application. Each virtual server can run its own operating systems independently. By having each physical server divided into multiple virtual servers, server virtualization allows each virtual server to act as a unique physical device. Each virtual server can run its own applications and operating system. This process increases the utilization of resources by making each virtual server act as a physical server and increases the capacity of each physical machine.
Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) combines common datacenter hardware using locally attached storage resources with intelligent software to create flexible building blocks that replace legacy infrastructure consisting of separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays. Benefits include lower TCO, increased performance, and greater productivity within IT teams.
