According to TechTraget.com, Avirtual machine is an operating system or application environment that isinstalled on software that mimics dedicated software.
Virtual Machinery hascome far in recent years that many companies are beginning to use them fortheir perks such as testing software, setting up quickly, saving systems andtesting the user’s own software. One perk to the use of virtual machines (V.M)is that is can be used to test software that many software developers are notsure on and V.M can indicate where there is an error with their software. Thesecond perk to V.M is that can be used to quickly and efficiently set up anoffice. Chris Brogan a wireless technology with 16 years of experience in thefield of technology provides an example, he says “Imagine you’re gearingup for a political campaign, or you’re going to build a retail store in a newtown.
You need an office with a mail server, a print server, a file server, andsome desktop systems. You could have your people on the ground to buy a serverfrom the local computer store (or ship one, whatever), and ship them the DVDwith your images on it (or a hard drive). About a half hour later, you couldhave everything configured and running.” The third perk of V.M is savingold systems, there are ways to use V.M to have a clone of a data center fromold systems and it is using a software called a P2w switch that works by thephysical-to-virtual connection. The four perks to V.
M is having the ability fora user to test their own software. If the user is in the process of designing aweb app or designing a website, they can use V.M and run some test. Throughout the years, man hasdeveloped many kinds of technology that has revolutionized how people run in aday-to-day life. One of the essential pieces of technology is the computer.
Thecomputer has gone through many different kinds of phases, slowly becomingbetter and better than its previews phase. Throughout those years, computerdesigners have created the desktop a current use of technology that many peopleuse. Along those years, the laptop has also created a form of twin to thedesktop but with any difference. The basics of a desktop are that originally itwill be set-up on a desk or table where it will be unable to move from anylocation. In addition. Desktops are basically external machines which manyseparated in pieces such as a keyboard, mouse and hard drive.
To some desktopscan also be hard to assembly requiring time and mandatory assimilation. However,if a piece of a desktop gets damage, the cost to repair the broken piece ischeap. On the other hand, the twin of the desktop, the laptop is completelydifferent from its twin. To start, unlike desktops where they are unable to bemoved, laptops are portable and can be pack in a bag.
Also, laptops do notrequire a separate device such as keyboards or mouse because their componentsare combined into one. In addition, laptops are easy to assemble since it’s allinto one and only need to remove it from its package. However, a laptop mayhave many advantages to it but for some people, the price to repair a laptop isvery expensive. Since all the components are built into it a person would needto take it to an expert that needs to take it apart and may need to order thepieces from the manufacturers. Furthermore, aside from these computers desktopand laptop, let not forget about the server.
A server is different from adesktop or laptop, unlike these devices, a server is a computer that is devotedto a host of multiple networks to other computers. In addition, there are manykinds of servers such as a network server, and a web server but many people usea server as a file server, database server printer server, and mail server.
