Virtualization 101

  1. 1. MAKING SENSE OF VIRTUALIZATION Dale Philips, MCPc Managing Director Converged Networks Group
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Virtualization has come a long way but the need remains the same . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>IT professionals require controlled, secure and centralized management of their business-computing environments. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Technology has become a more integral part of modern business operations . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Companies have incorporated more hardware into their office environments. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Processing power has increased and physical units are taking up a disproportionate amount of space, time and money. </li></ul>WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER .

  3. 3. Global Perspective #1 <ul><li>“ IDC recommends that business leaders and IT professional closely monitor – and perhaps even map – the impact that changing business requirements impose on IT services and assess how rapidly evolving IT technologies and new IT business models (e.g., virtualization, next-generation datacenters, cloud computer and second-generation ERP systems) will be deployed. IDC further recommends they re-evaluate IT investment strategies with an eye to taking advantage of flexible financing options that can preserve precious capital and reduce technology obsolescence.” </li></ul>* IDC White Paper – The Great Realignment: A Radically Changed Economy Demands New Approaches to IT Extract from IDC White Paper – September 2009* WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER .

  4. 4. Global Perspective #2 <ul><li>“ The professional desktop PC market is the most-exposed segment, with alternative architectures such as application streaming, hosted virtual desktops (HVDs) and blade PCs already resetting enterprise expectations of the client computing devices that are permanently connected to their networks. By moving some or all application executions to the data center, enterprises see an opportunity to pursue capital and operation cost savings by buying and deploying thinner, less capable desktop devices. However, deployment of HVDs requires initial high-cost investments in the server and network infrastructure.” </li></ul>Extract from Gartner for Business Leaders – February 2009* * Gartner – Emerging Technology Analysis: Hosted Virtual Desktops, February 2009 WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER .

  5. 5. The Need for Virtualization <ul><li>Low infrastructure utilization </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing physical infrastructure costs </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing IT management costs </li></ul><ul><li>Insufficient failover and disaster protection </li></ul><ul><li>High maintenance end-user desktops </li></ul>WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER .

  8. 8. Too Much Complexity in Today’s IT <ul><li>Cause </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Overwhelming complexity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reliance on brittle infrastructure </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Effect </li></ul><ul><ul><li>More than 70% of IT budgets are spent on “maintaining” the status quo. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less than 30% goes toward innovation and competitive advantage. </li></ul></ul>WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER .

  10. 10. So What is This Cloud Thing? Cloud computing is a way of doing computing Enterprises Cloud Service Providers Bridging Private Cloud Operated solely for an organization, typically within the firewall. Hybrid Cloud Composition of 2 or more interoperable clouds, enabling data and application portability. Public Cloud Accessible over the internet for general consumption . WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER . Copyright 2010 MCPc Confidential
  11. 11. Cloud Computing <ul><li>Cloud computing is an approach to computing that leverages the efficient pooling of on-demand, self-managed virtual infrastructure consumed as a service. </li></ul>WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER . Copyright 2010 MCPc Confidential
  12. 12. Cloud Computing Journey <ul><li>What leads to “How?” </li></ul>Cloud Computing IT Production Business Production IT as a Service Core Platform and Management Application Development Quality and Efficiency Advanced Management and Business Continuity Desktop Automation Path to Value WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER .

  14. 14. Server Virtualization Definition <ul><ul><li>Masking of server resources (including the number and identity of individual physical servers, processors and operation systems) from server users. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intent is to spare the user from having to understand and manage complicated details of server resources, while increasing resource sharing and utilization and maintaining the capacity to expand later. </li></ul></ul>WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER .

  18. 18. Application Virtualization Definition <ul><li>Umbrella term that describes software technologies that improve portability, manageability and compatibility of applications by encapsulating them from the underlying operating system on which they are executed. </li></ul><ul><li>A fully virtualized application is not installed in the traditional sense, although it is still executed as if it is. </li></ul><ul><li>The application is fooled at runtime into believing that it is directly interfacing with the original operating system and all the resources managed by it, when in reality it is not. </li></ul>WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER .
