Server Consolidation: Move multiple servers onto a single physical host with performance and fault isolation provided at the virtual machine boundaries.
Network Monitoring: Real-Time-Monitoring of Computers, Devices, Server and Applications in the entire Network
Hardware Independence: Allow legacy applications and operating systems to exploit new hardware
Vendor Independence: No need for any specific Hardware or vendor.
Multiple OS configurations: Run multiple operating systems simultaneously, for development or testing purposes.
Kernel Development:Test and debug kernel modifications in a sand-boxed virtual machine – no need for a separate test machine.
