What Is Virtualization and High Availability
Virtualization is the fundamental technology that powers cloud computing. This software separates compute environments from physical infrastructures, so you can run multiple operating systems and applications simultaneously on the same machine.
One of the biggest benefits of virtualization is sever consolidation. Instead of maintaining multiple servers that each have a different function, server virtualization allows you to split the resources of a single server for multiple purposes. Often server resources are underutilized, resulting in businesses spending too much on server upkeep for a little output.

Virtualization uses software to create an abstraction layer over the physical hardware. In doing so, it creates a virtual compute system, known as virtual machines (VMs). This allows organizations to run multiple virtual computers, operating systems, and applications on a single physical server essentially partitioning it into multiple virtual servers. Simply put, one of the main advantages of virtualization is that it's a more efficient use of the physical computer hardware; this, in turn, provides a greater return on a company's investment.
Advantages Of Virtualization - Quick Recovery Time
When a disaster affects a physical server, someone is responsible for replacing or fixing it and this could take hours or even days. With a virtualized environment, it's easy to provision and deploy, allowing you to replicate or clone the virtual machine that has been affected. The recovery process would take mere minutes as opposed to the hours it would take to provision and set up a new physical server and significantly enhancing the resiliency of the environment and improving business continuity.
Eco Friendly - We Are Green!
When you are able to cut down on the number of physical servers you are using, it all leads to a reduction in the amount of power being consumed. This has two green benefits:
- It reduces expenses for the business, and that money can be reinvested elsewhere.
- It reduces the carbon footprint of the data center.

Benefits Of Full Value Host High Availability
We employ a SAN (Storage Area Network) using only the finest SSD drives. Through data replication we are able to "bring back to live" any data that has been lost during a hardware failure.
In addition we use VMware VMware wich provides the best high-availability and fault tolerance in the industry today. No containers and no noisy neighbors! Next generation, enterprise hardware located in "best of class" datacenters. High availability built-into each cloud server with quick "back to live" technology. Truly the best choice for Wordpress, Joomla or other highly popular modern applications.
Plus CloudLinux OS
CloudLinux OS is the outstanding platform which increases the server security, efficiency, and stability by isolating each user in its own Lightweight Virtualized Environments (LVE).
It is a unique environment that consists of its own CPU, memory, IO, IOPS, number of processes and other limits. This will make sure that over usage of any users will not threaten the stability of your servers. If a particular user experiences sudden traffic and begins to consume all the resources, rather than increasing the server load, it will slow down only that particular LVE.
