Is it beneficial to use multiple types of virtualization software together? The answer: yes. Combining complementary virtualization technologies provides a stronger, more robust solution that reduces costs, maximizes return on investment (ROI), and minimizes the number of servers to manage. By consolidating these technologies, organizations can get the most out of the application, hardware, and operating system (OS).

The Application Deluge and Visibility Imperative

The information technology (IT) environment of today’s organizations is becoming complex and hence difficult to monitor and manage. For one thing, business applications can reside in corporate data centers or in the cloud—while users can be work near these centers or far across the globe. IT teams are therefore increasingly burdened with providing the required visibility into and control over the entire network—and with ensuring the high performance and availability of mission-critical applications.... Read More

More Efficient Virtualization Management: Templates

Historically, IT administrators have provisioned new servers with every new application, resulting in a large number of servers with utilization rates of 10 to 15 percent or less, commonly known as server sprawl. Server sprawl is responsible for a range of costs, including infrastructure, hardware, software, and management costs. So why hasn’t hardware virtualization solved your server sprawl issues yet? Read More

Your Guide to OS Virtualization

Today’s information technology (IT) organizations are dealing with the consequences of exploding infrastructure complexity. At the root of the problem is uncontrolled server sprawl—servers provisioned to support a single application. Organizations that have implemented hardware virtualization have unwittingly created a new problem: operating system (OS) sprawl. IT organizations have to find ways to address this critical challenge—today. Read More
