Virtualization is a technology that allows you to transform hardware into software. Virtualization allows you to run multiple operating systems simultaneously on a single computer. Each copy of an operating system is installed into a virtual machine. Virtualization is not either of these: Simulation Emulation 2

B ENEFITS OF A V IRTUAL M ACHINE Difficult to move or copy Bound to a specific set of hardware components Often has short life cycle Requires personal contact to upgrade hardware Virtual Machine Easy to manage Isolated from other virtual machines running on the same physical hardware Insulated from physical hardware changes Physical Machine Easy to move and copy Encapsulated into files Independent of physical hardware 3

4 V IRTUALIZATION OF S ERVERS Physical Servers are typically utilized up to % ($4,500 out of $30,000) Virtualized servers’ recommended utilization is up to 65% (some use as high as 90% - $27,000 out of $30,000!) St. Vincent Catholic Medical Centers: Consolidation ratio of 35 virtual machines to each physical host Nearly 85 percent of St. Vincent’s production environment has been virtualized Savings in power and cooling costs - $3.4 million (source: 4 Utilizing Virtualization Dr. Mirzoev

11 V IRTUALIZATION OF S TORAGE The availability of 100 percent for virtual servers is highly dependent on the availability of SAN running in the background of virtualized servers. IP-based systems provide great scalability and standards. Protocols such as FCIP and iFCP provide vast benefits to enterprise network storage systems but also have certain limitations. iSCSI evolved a protocol that does not involve the use of any FC equipment (i.e., it is all Ethernet-based.) iSCSI simply transports SCSI commands over TCP/IP 11 Utilizing Virtualization Dr. Mirzoev
