Server Virtualization

With virtualization we make the most efficient use of the available server capacity, or, a physical server is divided into a number of Virtual Machines (VMs) that are isolated from each other. In this Virtual Machine an application or function runs. Virtualization leads to a very efficient utilization of the existing hardware components.

Where servers usually do not give more than 5-25% utilization as task servers, virtualization offers the possibility of running the applications within VMs with multiple VMs running on one server. This brings a better utilization of the servers and therefore a significant reduction in the number of servers to be managed. Depending on the loads that certain applications and/or functions require, better hardware utilization is possible, which can be up to 70%!

Desktop Virtualization

Today we virtualize network, storage, hardware, desktops and applications. Desktop or workplace virtualization is an application that is gaining more and more attention. This form of virtualization can essentially be divided into two: 'server hosted' and 'client-side'. The form of Desktop Virtualization that is getting the most attention is the 'server hosted' one.

More and more organizations are wondering whether they should choose Virtual Desktop Infrastuctures (VDI), Server Based Computing (SBC) or local desktops. Questions that arise are: Will VDI replace the SBC concept? What are the advantages and disadvantages of VDI? What role does Application Virtualization and OS streaming play in the whole concept?

Application Virtualization

Making applications available to end users is the goal, application virtualization is a means. One form of application virtualization is to detach an application from the operating system.

The application of application virtualization is a reality and certainly not a fantasy. It is a must-have for every organization!

With application deployment, applications are installed wherever they are active. That can be on a local desktop or laptop, but also on a central virtual desktop, blade PC or Terminal Server.

When we talk about application delivery in the context of application virtualization, applications are no longer installed, but are made available and executed as a service at lightning speed. The device where the application is executed is not changed in the process.   

Benefits of application virtualization:

- Applications are never installed on workstations again.
- Conflicts between applications no longer occur.
- It eliminates the need for regression testing.
- Multiple versions of applications can be used side by side.
- Support for Web, Client-Server and Server Based Computing applications.
- Consolidation of Terminal Servers.

Virtualization and the cloud

Although they are two different concepts, the term virtualization is often mentioned in the same breath as cloud computing. This comparison is unjustified, as the building blocks of a cloud infrastructure are not just physical hardware, virtualization software and management. This goes much further. Think about the chargeback of services, service level management, service catalogs, in order to achieve a dynamic data center. This is often underestimated by end users. Cloud Management is also crucial in cloud computing. ContinYou supports you with this.
