In Computing World, Virtualization is the creation of a Systems Consolidation, such as Application Virtualization, Server Virtualization and Desktop Virtualization.
The usual goal of virtualization is to consolidate & centralize administrative tasks while improving scalability and workloads. Furthermore, Cloud computing is a natural evolution of the widespread adoption of virtualization. Tung Hing has 10 year experience in Virtualization & Cloud Computing market and establishes close partnership with the major players, such as, Citrix, Microsoft, Vmware, Vizioncore & ThinPrint.
Application virtualization isolates applications from the underlying operating system and from other applications to increase compatibility and manageability. It enables applications to be streamed from a centralized location into an isolation environment on the target device where they will execute. Applications are not installed in the traditional sense. Compared to traditional application deployment technology, virtual application delivery enables organizations to improve application management by:
Centralizing applications in the datacenter to reduce costs
Controlling and encrypting access to data and applications to improve security
Delivering applications instantly to users anywhere
Server virtualization consolidates the server resources. IT administrator uses a software application to divide one physical server into multiple individual virtual environments by running multiple independent virtual operating systems. The virtual environments are sometimes called Virtual Servers. Server Virtualization can achieve higher server density which can let the company & organization to enjoy the benefits:
Reduces costs by consolidating servers and reducing power, cooling, and datacenter space needs.
Increases IT flexibility by allowing the provisioning of new servers and IT services within minutes.
Ensures that application requirements and performance levels are always met
Minimizes downtime by reducing the impact of failures and protecting against disasters.
Desktop virtualization provides a more flexible, people-centric computing experience for users while helping your organization address key business priorities. Easy access to complete virtualized desktops, applications and data from any location, using any device enables more productive and mobile virtual work styles and inspires innovation throughout the business. Fast, flexible desktop delivery helps IT adapt quickly to business changes and supports shift work, branch expansion, M&A and other initiatives. Centralized desktop management, delivery and control let you re-think your entire approach to desktop computing to enable new levels of mobility, security and cost reduction.
Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, which shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand. It is a service-oriented architecture and utility computing. Details are abstracted from consumers, who no longer have need for expertise in, or control over, the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them. Cloud computing describes a new supplement, consumption, and delivery model for IT services based on the Internet.
