The affordability of cloud computing and virtualization are helping small businesses do away with in-house IT hardware. Virtual containers are the next step in that trend. They come with plenty of benefits and are becoming easier to manage every day.
Virtualization containers 101
Virtualization Basics: Windows on Macs
A common reason for running the Windows operating system (OS) on a Mac computer is to bypass compatibility issues. Virtualization is the only way to efficiently install OS-specific software on any machine, so let’s go over some of the ways this solution creates synergy between the two platforms.
Dispelling myths about containers
Business owners stand to gain from learning emerging IT trends. In the case of containers, it’s an opportunity to reduce costs, increase hardware efficiency, and improve data security. One of the best ways to learn about containers is to address the misconceptions about them.
The benefits of virtualization in 2018
The relationship between computer hardware and software can be frustrating. Both require the other to function properly, but both also require individual attention. Virtualization makes this relationship more flexible, and we’ve got a rundown on a few of the best examples.
Windows Server gets a big upgrade
Despite measurable impacts on the bottom line, most business owners don’t get excited about the release of server software. Microsoft is doing its best to change that with Windows Server 2019, a brand new operating system that includes an impressive list of features.
Choosing the right virtualization strategy
Just because virtualization is an incredibly advanced and complicated technology doesn’t mean small businesses can’t get in on the action. As experts debate the merits of virtual desktops versus containers, all SMBs need are an elementary understanding of how virtualization works and an IT provider.
What are Virtual Containers?
Virtual containers have recently gained prominence with the open-source container platform, Docker. It promises to change the way IT operations are carried out, just like virtualization technology did a few years ago. Read on to know more about this revolutionary breakthrough and how it can help your business.
Benefits of virtualizing Windows on your Mac
There are countless reasons to run the Windows operating system (OS) on a Mac computer, but the main one is so you can use apps designed for PC on an Apple machine. However, there are other benefits that make virtualizing Windows on your Mac worth it regardless of your software needs.
Azure is getting a new type of container
Virtualization has moved out of the server farms owned by big-name enterprises and onto the wishlists of small- and medium-sized business owners. As a subset of virtualization, container technology is benefitting from this commercialization and becoming more accessible to everyone.
Quick review: why you need virtualization
With virtualization, you can make software see several separate computers where there is only one, or make several computers look like one supercomputer. That may sound simple, but it’s far from it. Of course the benefits are well worth it; here are just a few.
