How to run different separate Virtual Machines do improves the overall security of the server? An idea has come to my mind that if three separate Virtual machines (VMs) was use for database server, web server and the data analysis server, the overall security of the server may be improved. Is this true?
Does having separate VMs improve security?
Virtual Machines run separately, so regarding your concern, it does improve security of the server overall. You are correct. Virtual machines are not as visible as psychical infrastructure, so that has a lot of advantages. The only thing you have to pay attention for, is to be careful if you are dealing with a lot of files and confidential information, not to put virtual machine on an unsecured server, as it can be compromised.
