Virtualization. Call it the latest buzz word or technology fad but it’s having a huge impact on the technology industry as a whole. The deployment of virtualization is primarily driven by the need to improve data centre operations and efficiencies (for both Oracle database andMicrosoft SQL Server databases). However, there are a number of virtualization options available and selecting the right one can make all the difference. One item to take into account when evaluating the options is the application requirements, both from a business and technical perspective. Integrated virtualization solutions with applications and servers are the most effective and bring the most benefits.
The optimal building blocks for maximum agility and streamlined operations are comprised of a combination of the hardware, operating system, virtualization platform, database solution, applications, management and support.
This type of all encompassing solution creates a foundation for future technology roadmaps that include cloud-based environments. Driving your virtualization strategy by acknowledging the application requirements enables deployment of complete solutions.
