Virtualisation

Virtualisation represents an abstraction from physical resources. Basically, it makes it possible to run multiple virtual machines on one physical machine, sharing the resources of that single computer across multiple environments. Virtualisation transforms hardware into software - CPU, RAM, fax servers or hard disk - to create an entirely functional virtual machine capable of executing its own OS and its own applications like a real computer.

You can manage numerous physical resources virtually and remotely from a single console as if they were physically installed on each work station.

Fax virtualisation

Esker Fax Server solution can be seamlessly implemented in a virtual machine without any hardware by integrating fax with your Voice over IP network. Fax over IP, using the boardless Dialogic® Brooktrout® SR140 platform, leverages your VoIP architecture to fax enable users and applications without requiring any fax boards.

Virtualisation benefits include:

  • Cost of operating fax servers lowered by up to 40%
  • Existing and expected future workloads consolidated
  • New services and applications up and running faster
  • Business continuity ensured
  • Reduced carbon footprint by moving from paper to digital workflows

How it works

Technically, virtualisation is performed by inserting a layer of software on a hardware platform. The software creates a simulated computer environment – the virtual machine – capable of hosting an operating system that runs as if it were installed on a stand-alone hardware platform.




Each virtual machine is actually a complete and fully functional system. It contains a virtual machine monitor - called hypervisor - which will allocate the resources dynamically and with complete transparency, eliminating potential conflict. Therefore, multiple operating systems can run concurrently on a single physical computer and share hardware resources with each other. A virtual machine is fully compatible with all standard x86 operating systems, applications, and device drivers.
