  • Cost Effective - Not going to use all hardware power at once. Example later about load. Hardware stays in-use longer.
    Snapshots - Copy of the virtual machine disk file and memory at a certain point in time. Revert if something goes wrong. Like a “Restore Point” for your VM.
    Security - If that system is compromised, not all of your servers are compromised.
  • Two ways: Remotely (Servers) and Locally on PC

  • Multiple servers, again, not locked into a single operating system on a single hardware. Think about how Windows gets bogged down with too much stuff installed. Thin client.
  • Seasonable Load - Students enrolling in classes puts considerable load on Enroll & Pay servers. Run instances on several hardware units.

  • Mac/Linux - Students use it to login to Stromberg

  • AMD or Intel.
    Memory - Your main computer has to use some, and the VM has to use some.
    Hard Drive - XP install is about 2GB install + swap file (double the size of your RAM)
