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).

Put the Customer First: Managing the User Experience

Customers are demanding increasingly high levels of service—they want what they want, as soon as they want it. Networks need to be faster than ever, and more reliable, to satisfy exacting customer standards.

While organizations often rely on a patchwork of network resources to deliver their services, customers expect their experience to be seamless. Network managers need to monitor those resources more proactively for a holistic view that considers network availability, network performance, and service quality. This demands a shift in focus from hardware to a deeper understanding of service provision and the customer experience. It also requires an evolved skill set, and new application-monitoring tools.

This white paper explores the evolution of networks, including the idea of user-centric networks and network virtualization, and the technology that will support it. Read More

Top 10 Considerations for Choosing a Server Virtualization Technology

The playing field for server virtualization has become much more crowded over the last few years. It can be very time-consuming to digest each vendor’s marketing materials to find the right solution for your organization. That’s why you need to be aware of the main considerations and basic differences between the technologies, to find a starting point for technology evaluation. 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
