Computer technology is advancing at a tremendous pace, with computing capacity doubling roughly every two years. This huge increase in processing power means that many modern servers are underutilized, as the applications and services they run do not fully consume available resources. In fact, many servers routinely operate at anywhere between 2% and 10% of their processing load, yet IT Administrators are reluctant to combine applications into one server because key applications can interact in unfriendly ways, resulting in reduced reliability and increased unscheduled downtime.
Virtualization addresses this need by allowing multiple applications to share one physical server resource while eliminating the interaction between them.
In a traditional server, the hardware is controlled by an abstraction layer made up of device drivers, which in turn are controlled by the operating system. Your applications (such as a mail or database server) run on top of the operating system, which they use to communicate both with the server’s hardware and with other devices on the network, including your computer. In this case, one errant application can cause the operating system to fail, bringing the whole server down.
In a virtualized server, a special layer of software, called a hypervisor, is introduced. This layer sits between the device drivers and the operating system, and allows multiple copies of the operating system to run in parallel; however, each virtual server (often referred to as a ‘workload’) is separate, and is unaware of the existence of the others. Other than the fact that they share the same hardware, virtual servers are independent of each other as if they were separate physical servers.
Delivering desktops as a managed service lets you create a more flexible IT infrastructure so you can help your business respond more quickly to market changes and opportunities. Deploy applications and desktops faster and more consistently to a wider variety of clients, lowering costs while improving service levels. Extend the life of legacy applications and eliminate installation conflicts by virtualizing applications. For remote and branch offices, move your desktops into the cloud and deliver them as a managed service wherever they're needed while retaining the control and security you need.
