A multiple server environment is an outdated way that companies use to store information that they use for their business. Each application or operating system that a company is stored on a single physical machine leaving the majority of the space the machine can hold unused and wasted. The accumulation of unused space costs the company a lot of money, but the use of multiple servers also takes away from the time that IT administrators have to work on streamlining operations. Each server must be updated, archived and backed up individually and requires an IT admin to spend much of their time monitoring these processes.
These problems are eliminated by switching to a virtualization platform. A virtualization platform allows a company to store its applications and operating systems on a single server. This consolidates the information and eliminates the presence of unused space on multiple servers so that the company does not need to spend the money for equipment it will not use to the maximum capability. The data stored on the single machine is accessed by different virtual terminals that share the server's resources.
Consolidating the information to a single server also greatly reduces the amount of time that a company's IT admins must spend focused on the maintenance of their servers; leaving them available to work on other aspects of the business means that they will be able to save the company money by streamlining other operations.
There are some obstacles that must be overcome to ensure that a virtualization platform operates as smoothly as possible. I/O bandwidth bottlenecks faster due to accelerated fragmentation, virtual machine competition for shared I/O resources is not prioritized effectively across the platform and virtual disks set to resize do not shrink when data are deleted. These are a few of the problems that can occur on the platform.
Other problems can include increased boot-up and shut-down times on the system, stopping employees from accessing the information that they need to complete their jobs, and even diminished storage capacity and reduced hardware life. These problems can reduce the efficiency of the entire platform and limit the benefits that a company receives from using a virtualization platform.
Luckily there is a way to eliminate these problems and guarantee maximum performance from the virtual platform. V-locity is a virtual platform disk optimizer that uses a unique blend of technology to eliminate the threats that virtualization platforms face. These technologies protect the virtualization platform from the resource conflicts, reduced storage capacity and I/O conflicts that many companies have seen as deterrents.
Virtualization platforms offer companies a number of different benefits for storing their applications and operating systems that are unmatched by multiple server environments, but it is important that the platform is properly protected. Installing V-locity virtual platform disk optimizer allows a company to ensure that they are getting the maximum use out of their platform and is the only way to ensure maximum I/O performance on virtual machines.
