For a large enterprise deploying virtualized servers, what are two benefits of using a bare metal hypervisor solution instead of a hosted hypervisor solution? (Choose two.)

  • enhanced security
  • increased efficiency
  • elimination of the need for management console software
  • direct access to hardware resources
  • addition of an extra layer of abstraction
    Answers Explanation & Hints:

    Type 1, or bare metal hypervisors, install directly on host hardware. Because of this, a Type 1 hypervisor has direct access to the host hardware resources; and thus has fewer layers of abstraction and is more efficient. However, bare metal hypervisors do need to have management console software to manage the VM instances.
