Virtualization in Data Center

A growing number of companies optimize their costs by implementing database, directory services, LDAP, class systems ERP, CRM, HRM, etc. But with the growing number of information systems, it is complicated for the corporate data center server infrastructure, because of increased expenditure on maintenance, decreasing the percentage of utilization of server equipment, as well as due to the use of different types of equipment from different suppliers is greatly reduced manageability of computer data center infrastructure.

In order to solve such problems and reduce maintenance costs of data centers, there are a couple of providers who offers services in optimizing server infrastructure, data center-based virtualization solutions.

The advantages of data center virtualization solutions are:

Cost optimization: Allows more efficient use of resources to support and develop the data center by improving the utilization of servers, reducing the cost of maintenance, power and air conditioning.

Fault tolerance and availability: Ensures continuous operation of key IT services and enterprise applications by enabling migration of virtual servers between physical servers. Thus, the duration of unscheduled downtime of IT services due to server failure or its individual components (CPU, means switching, memory, etc.) is minimized, and maintenance does not interrupt the information systems at the expense of pre-load forwarding to another physical server.

The central control system: Allows administrators to consolidate data center computing resources and enables us to provide IT services on demand, thanks to a unified view of hardware resources, which allows you to combine different physical servers with polytypic I / O subsystems into one system.

Load balancing: Provides load balancing between servers in an automatic and semi-automatic mode, which substantially increases the percentage of utilization of server equipment.

Scalability: Allows you to deploy multiple virtual servers on one physical server, enabling significant increase in the flexibility of your server infrastructure. For example, during setup and installation of a new virtual server that is ten times less than the traditional installation of a physical server.
