Hardware virtualization (or ‘virtual’) servers allow you to run multiple operating systems on a single machine. Unlike software virtualization, our ESXi-compatible servers allow each OS to access the server’s full hardware capabilities with no overhead. As a popular example, you can run our standard unRAID OS for your media archive as well as a Windows install for BluRay and DVD ripping. Most versions of Windows and Linux are supported, and the possibilities are endless. Like to tinker? A virtual server is your sandbox…go play.
