Data Centre Infrastructure

Virtualization solutions

Server Virtualization

IT organizations today are faced with pressure to lower facilities costs, limit the overall number of servers, and reduce administration and staffing required for their data centers. Any number of reasons, ranging from the one server-one application paradigm to the overall weak global economy in the past few years, can take the blame. To mitigate the cost cutting pressures of IT organizations, one solution that has been growing in recent years is software virtualization solutions. Industry analysts predict that partitioning and mixed-workload technologies, including virtualization solutions, will triple between 2006 and 2010. By 2008, enterprises that do not leverage virtualization technologies will spend 25 percent more annually for hardware, software, labor, and space for Intel servers.

Virtual Iron provides enterprise-class software for server virtualization & virtual infrastructure management. The product offers comparable capabilities and performance to established proprietary offerings – for less than 20 percent of the cost.

Virtual Iron enables server partitioning for single and multi-server configuration and advanced management capabilities for rapid provisioning, high availability (LiveMigrate™, LiveRecovery™), disaster recovery (LiveRecovery™), workload management and policy-based automation (LiveCapacity™). With these advanced capabilities, users can:

  • Virtualize enterprise-class workloads running on unmodified Windows and Linux operating systems.
  • Improve the utilization of current systems and reduce power, space and cooling issues through server consolidation.
  • Quickly set up development, test and production environments.
  • Recover from failures quickly, reliably and cost-efficiently.
  • Match resource capacity to workload demands automatically.
  • Reduce human labor and errors via policy-based automation.
Application Scenarios

Server Consolidation Improve the utilization of current systems and get more out of today's industry-standard hardware via partitioning and consolidation. Run unmodified operating systems concurrently on a single server.
Rapid Provisioning Quickly and economically set up development, test, staging and production environments by capturing, copying and cloning software reference stacks (golden images).
Business Continuity Increase business critical application uptime and build flexible and inexpensive high availability and disaster recovery solutions with less hardware.
Capacity Management Align computing resources with business initiatives by configuring, reconfiguring and allocating capacity on-the-fly, and making resources available to all the applications in the system.
Virtual Infrastructure Management Leverage capacity management and policy-driven automation capabilities to enable rapid reconfiguration, capacity on demand, fail-over and recovery without increased administrative overhead.
Development and Test Streamline develop-ment to test to production cycles using testing and staging configurations that are easy to change, can be run in parrallel, and do not require a physical machine for each configuration to be tested.

Storage Virtualization

While the unit cost of storage is decreasing, the amount of data that businesses need to keep on hand and the cost of managing that data are increasing exponentially. To answer the call for data on-demand, but still keep storage affordable, companies are looking for ways to better utilize existing resources.

Storage virtualization simplifies storage administration and reducing costs for managing diverse storage assets.
