Virtual Servers

A virtual server is a software implementation of a computer that runs an operating system and server software like a physical computer. By hosting multiple virtual servers on one physical server, you, your department, and the university can realize cost savings, power savings, and systems administration efficiencies.

Virtual servers are often also referred to as "virtual machines" (or VMs, for short).
