Techopedia explains Virtual Server Facility (VSF)
In general, virtual server facility refers to a partitioning system, a feature in ECL-CMOS systems, that allows for embedding a server facility within a greater IT context. IT experts describe it as a "feature" of some versions of ECL-CMOS, which is a combination of two logic principles for integrated circuits. This makes it complex to describe the application of a VSF, which differs from case to case. However, the benefits of these applications clearly relate to the ability to partition server operations and set up virtualization or sophisticated server delegation systems.
