VMware ESXi allows one server to be partitioned into many smaller “virtual servers”. This is done through software called a “hypervisor” which controls and monitors the creation and operation of the virtual servers.
Virtual servers are much more flexible and take only minutes to create when compared to traditional physical servers which can take hours or days to bring online. This flexibility provides unique cost innovations for companies that require several small- to mid-scale servers.
Two or more VMware ESXi servers can be connected to provide failover so that if one of the servers fails, the virtual servers are transferred to the standby server, thereby allowing your business to continue while the failed server is repaired.
