Virtualization of video infrastructure eliminates the “one server, one application” model and delivers greater efficiencies in how you manage, deploy and scale video infrastructure to fit your needs. While hardware solutions offer a number of conveniences, virtualization presents another set of benefits for the enterprise.

How Does Virtualization Work?
Virtualization of video infrastructure is a process whereby a layer of virtualizing software abstracts the systems running on a server. A virtual machine is a tightly isolated software container than can run its own operating system and its own applications, and it is completely independent of the underlying physical hardware.
Through virtualization, you can run multiple virtual machines on a single physical server, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that server. In addition, a virtual machine can be moved to other existing servers, thus providing added flexibility and control within your network environment.
