Why you need to virtualize?

The main reason is the reduction of maintenance costs of it infrastructure.

Virtualization provides a lot of amenities and benefits, this is especially evident on “heavy” systems, which uses hardware partitions. The use of multiple servers on a single physical significantly increases the efficiency of its use. Moreover, the current multi-core processors with special instructions sets loss in performance either minimal, or not at all. As a result, average company only one server instead of four. The savings is obvious: cost reduction for equipment, for electricity, for the square arrangement.

Everything connected with the Internet can be virtualized, these tasks do not require significant resources. Servers that provide shared access to files and print services, as well as serving the system of collective work, for business are more significant, but virtualization does not entail any problems. However, for database servers, starting from a certain volume of stored data, the virtual servers are bad. The main reasons: the current limits on the amount of resources that you can allocate to the virtual machine. Therefore, BI systems, as well as vysokostatusnye primogeniture ERP or CRM is not recommended to deploy on virtual servers.

In addition, the advantages of using virtualization starts when a certain critical mass of redundant physical servers. The total cost of a system that uses virtualization, taking into account software licenses can be higher than multiple physical servers, each of which will solve one problem. And this difference is not always possible to compensate by reducing cost of ownership. In addition, the physical server becomes a single point of failure, and its failure or failure will affect all virtual servers that are installed on it.

Insitu gives complex solutions for virtualization

Server virtualization

Installation on physical server hypervisor that allows you to install in a virtual environment the virtual server group.

Virtualization infrastructure

Creation of it infrastructure that does not depend on hardware.

Virtualization of servers, desktops, applications – there are many methods to create such an independent infrastructure. In this case, on one physical or host server by means of special software called “hypervisor” that allocates several virtual or “guest” machines.

Modern system virtualization, in particular VMware and Citrix XenServer, most of them work on the principle of bare metal, that is placed directly on the bare metal.

Virtualization OS level

Virtualizing a physical server at the operating system level, allowing you to run isolated and secure virtual servers on one physical server.

Virtualization resources

Splitting a large resource (e.g. disk space or bandwidth of a network) into a number of smaller, easier use of resources of the same type.

Application virtualization

Create virtual working environment for locally running applications.
