Top 10 Virtualization Initiatives

  1. 1. Top 10 Virtualization Initiatives Created By:
  2. 2. 1. Consolidation <ul><li>Data, servers and IT efforts can all be consolidated among fewer physical servers, improving efficiency and lowering costs.  Businesses can save 50-70% on IT operational costs by implementing virtualization. </li></ul>
  3. 3. 2. Improved Backup and Recovery Efforts <ul><li>A consolidated system allows for faster retrieval and backup of critical information and the virtual atmosphere enables more control over these efforts.  Because the information on a virtual server is independent from its hardware, recovery is accomplished quickly and easily. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>This allows for quicker retrieval of application data and increases application availability across the network.  Single desktop computers can now run multiple operating systems within the virtual environment. </li></ul>3. Expansion of Applications into the Virtual Infrastructure
  5. 5. 4. Disaster Recovery <ul><li>The entire virtual server can be encapsulated and saved on a failover site, allowing recovery to take place in one hour instead of 40 or more hours with a physical server.  Hardware independence reduces the chances of loss dramatically. </li></ul>
  6. 6. 5. Security in a Virtual Infrastructure <ul><li>Unlike physical servers, virtual servers are meant to share information virtually, eliminating the need for special sharing procedures and providing a secure way to transmit information.  A typical virtual server operates on a proprietary operating system, leaving it nearly impervious to attack. </li></ul>
  7. 7. 6. Improved Operational Processes <ul><li>Better desktop control allows for quicker response time to user issues and faster desktop deployment. </li></ul>
  8. 8. 7. Move from Test to Production <ul><li>Testing in the virtual environment allows for easy tweaks and a smooth transition when it is time to put a new project into production mode.  A complete test server can be created to fully develop a system before launching it into production. </li></ul>
  9. 9. 8. Storage Deployment <ul><li>With everything stored virtually, deployment can happen in a matter of minutes to anywhere in the network.  Storage can also be placed onto anything from a USB drive to an enterprise storage area network. </li></ul>
  10. 10. 9. High Availability <ul><li>Baseline availability of all applications can be easily increased on a virtual server, and downtime for common maintenance can be eliminated completely. </li></ul>
  11. 11. 10. Management Software Integration <ul><li>Web and command line management software interfaces can be seamlessly integrated on a virtual server to create partitions, manage virtual storage and virtual Ethernet. </li></ul>
