It is the practice of using multiple physical servers (or computers), each having a single instance of an operating system, to serve different needs or purposes. 1 Physical Hardware Separation. server, email server, web server, FTP server, and so on. Physical hardware separation is commonly driven by applications that have mutually exclusive requirements of the hardware devices and/or operating system, applications with high resource utilization, or server stability. Some applications cannot share the same environment as other applications because they were designed to have control of the entire operating system and the server’s resources.

Applications have also been separated onto dedicated physical servers because of the idea that it is generally more stable to have fewer applications running within the same instance of an operating system, usually because of poor resource management by the operating system (whether true or perceived) or because of poor resource handling or wasteful resource utilization by an application. Another reason that applications are installed on separate hardware is because they were designed and written for different operating systems or different hardware architectures.

The software layer of the system is made up of the operating system, the applications and the device drivers that control the hardware components. The device drivers that are installed on the operating system normally create a one-to-one relationship between the hardware and the operating system controlling it. Virtualization allows us to overcome the exclusive device ownership of these hardware components, which causes the physical server to be constrained into running a single operating system instance at a time.
