Presentation Transcript: Virtualization Best Practices - Beyond Virtualization Basics
In part 1 of this three part presentation, Greg Schulz takes an advanced look at virtualization, use case scenarios, and identifies the costs and technology impacts.
Most IT professionals are already aware of what a hypervisor is and the benefits of consolidation... but there is new technology out there, new use cases, and new offerings. Greg explains how to take advantage of the latest capabilities that are available.
Topics covered include:
- Virtualization beyond consolidation (i.e. enhancing data protection, disaster recovery, security, and improved management)
- Re-architecting – how to properly assess your environment
- Tiered virtualization – deploying a mixed environment, a more sophisticated approach for those considering a second platform
- Matching up which use case works best with each virtualization approach (e.g. when to virtualize databases instead of consolidation)
