Actual benefits may vary depending on specific client implementations. Today’s Mission-Critical Apps Today, each mission-critical application typically gets its own dedicated physical server. That makes performance predictable. It also requires that another physical server be added for every new application. The result is data center sprawl, slow deployment and high costs. A Typical Virtualized Host When applications are virtualized, they run as virtual servers that share the resources of a physical host. Virtual servers can be copied, deployed, and moved in minutes instead of days or hours. Fewer physical servers mean lower costs. But virtual apps compete for the memory/compute resources of their host, making performance unpredictable. Security/isolation is a bigger challenge. Therefore, many organizations are reluctant to virtualize mission-critical apps. A Forward! Virtualized Host Forward! divides a physical server into secure partitions using Unisys s-Par® technology. Each partition is a containerized server with its own dedicated resources. That makes performance predictable and security/ isolation easier. Yet a container has all the advantages of a virtual server. It can be copied, deployed and moved in minutes. Applications can be migrated without changes from UNIX to Linux and run on lower-cost industry standard x86-based servers. Meanwhile, Unisys Stealth® technology makes servers virtually invisible to unauthorized users. You can’t hack what you can’t see. It’s time to move forward.
