Virtualization is the process of using the resources of a single physical computer to create multiple virtual machines. The storage, memory, and CPU are allocated in a number of discrete portions that each represent a separate system. These systems are considered virtual systems as they do not possess their own physical computing resources.
There are advantages to be gained through virtualization. They include facilitating the management of your network and reducing the need for hardware and software investment. Examples of virtual environments are VMWare, ESX, and Microsoft Hyper-V. While the benefits of virtualization are real, there are also some issues to be overcome when implementing a virtual environment.
When working with virtualization products for servers you can face a major issue. I.e. such virtualization programs as VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V and others do not feature USB ports in virtual machines. As a result you can't use USB devices (security dongles, smart cards, etc.) physically plugged in a host computer on virtual servers as a virtual USB.
USB Network Gate is a great helper when servers and workstations virtualization is needed. I.e. it will help you access USB devices connected to a host PC from virtual machines. Thanks to USB Network Gate it is possible and very convenient to work with USB devices on guest OS of such virtual environments as VMware ESX, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Hyper-V, Windows Virtual PC, QEMU (KMV) etc.
USB Network Gate allows attaching a USB device to a guest OS running on Virtual Server. All you have to do is install USB Network Gate on host OS of any computer on your network and share a USB device there. Also install USB Network Gate on guest OS of any computer on your network, where you want to use the device, and connect to a shared one! USB Network Gate provides USB passthrough to guest OS running on Virtual Server. The OS will treat this USB device as a real one and you can work with it as if it were connected directly to your Virtual Machine.
