Monolithic means that the application performed all of the necessary functions, such as providing the user interface, the application logic, as well as access to data. Most companies have moved away from deploying monolithic applications and towards a form of distributed computing that is often referred to as n-tier applications. Since these tiers are implemented on separate systems, WAN performance impacts n-tier

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.
