Vmware Virtual Infrastructure - IT Tool Box Blog

A single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility—not just for large enterprises, but for small and midsize businesses too. VMware virtualization lets you: Run multiple operating systems and applications on a single computer. Here is a great overview video on Virtualization created by VMware Virtualzation enables organizations to run more workload on single server by consolidating the environment so the your application run on virtual machines. Converting to a virtualized datacenter reduces the required datacenter square footage, rack space, power, cooling, cabling, storage, and network components by reducing the sheer number of physical hardware.

Reduction of physical machines can be realized by converting physical machine to virtual machine and consolidating the converted machines onto a single host. No need to wait for the hardware to for new server deployment. Physical and Virtual Architecture Why Use Virtual Machine?

2015 Year of the Whale and other disruptive trends in IT –

In late 2014 the overarching trend disrupting technology and industries everywhere is still the growth of software. Software is now nearly ubiquitous due to the proliferation of general purpose processing power, low-cost personal computing devices, and the advent of universal connectivity through the Internet. The biggest challenge still facing developers and IT operations teams today is the ability to build and scale complex distributed systems, and to continuously evolve those systems in response to rapidly changing customer and market needs.

Three major trends that are taking shape to meet this challenge are containerization, hybrid cloud, and converged infrastructure: 2015 is Year of the Whale Remember way back when the world tried to pretend that VMWare was no big deal?

Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure

Bittman, Philip Dawson, Michael Warrilow About 75% of x86 server workloads are virtualized, but virtualization technologies are becoming more lightweight, supporting more workloads and agile development. Price, cloud interoperability and specific use cases are driving enterprises to deploy multiple virtualization technologies. Market Definition/Description The x86 server virtualization infrastructure market is defined by organizations that are looking for solutions to virtualize applications from their x86 server hardware or OSs, reducing underutilized server hardware and associated hardware costs and increasing agility in delivering the server capacity that applications need. Solutions for this market leverage: Magic Quadrant Figure 1.
