Virtual Machine Hypervisors

The Ninefold cloud currently supports the Citrix XenServer hypervisor, which is mature, secure, dependable and fast. A hypervisor is software that allows multiple operating systems to run simultaneously (virtualised) on a single hardware host. Each operating system assumes it has the host’s processor, memory and other resources all to itself. However, the hypervisor is actually controlling the host’s resources, allocating what is needed to each operating system and managing the virtual machines independently.

There are many benefits of server virtualisation; five big ones are:

There are many popular hypervisors in use today, the most popular being VMware ESX, Citrix XenServer, Hyper-V and Xen.

The choice of hypervisor may become more important if you are looking to import virtual servers (or virtual appliances) to run on Ninefold from somewhere else. If you are already using XenServer, you’ll find it a simple process to migrate your virtual servers to Ninefold. If you are currently using one of the other hypervisors, there are simple tools available to migrate from one platform to another.
