A Couple More Articles Published17 April 2008 · Filed in Information
These articles kind of snuck past me; I usually pick up on the publication of one of my articles pretty quickly but I somehow missed these two:
Server hardware virtualization, such as that provided by VMware with VMware Infrastructure 3 (VI3), by Citrix with XenServer, or by Microsoft with Microsoft Virtual Server (and eventually Hyper-V), can make a tremendous difference in data center design.
Networking is certainly one area where the effects of virtualization are being felt.
There is little doubt that virtualization can offer tangible benefits, such as finally making it possible to do more with less. But adopting server virtualization technology isn’t all roses for an IT organization. In this tip, I spell out why server virtualization creates three specific challenges: breaking down IT department fiefdoms; possible increases in security vulnerabilities; and greater complexity in change management.
Feedback on the articles is welcome; I always try to be open to anything that may improve my abilities as a writer or that will help me better serve my readers.Tags: Networking · Virtualization · Writing Previous Post: The Dark Side of Virtualization Next Post: VI Programming Book on the Horizon
