A virtual machine (VM) is a software implementation of a physical machine. A hypervisor separates the virtual
machine from physical hardware dependencies and takes advantage of unused resources (memory, compute, and storage capacities) by sharing them with multiple VMs. Virtualization provides resiliency as virtual machines can be moved between hosts in the event of a host failure, minimizing or avoiding downtime for the guest virtual machine. VUIT is responsible for operating system (OS) level support of the server including: connectivity to the network, installation, licensing, patches and upgrades of the OS, server performance monitoring, and regularly scheduled backups. Managed Hosting is also known as Co-hosting (CoHo). The customer is responsible for licensing, installation, patches and upgrades of all applications running on the server. This service is available to Vanderbilt University faculty and staff.
