When you’re operating across an entire network of terminals, inefficiencies and problems are bound to arise.

To answer this, it’s worth thinking about the architecture that results from server virtualization. You will still have physical servers (it’s a bit hard to do without them) each of which will be running several virtual servers. As such and from a security perspective, you’ve actually added a layer – which can be both a benefit and a constraint.

Advantages & Disadvantages

First, the advantages. In principle, a virtualized environment can benefit from all the security measures already in place in the physical world. If physical servers are in a...
