  1. Presented by John Marian, Andrew Buhr, and Alvin Chen Server Virtualization

  2. Dividing a physical server into multiple isolated virtual servers by means of software What is it? Image Courtesy of VMWare.com

  3. Desktop Virtualization: • Requires host operating system • Not built for server-grade reliability • Server Virtualization: • Production grade reliability • May not require host operating system Desktop vs Server Virtualization

  4. Server Consolidation • Less Physical Equipment • Reduced Costs • Efficiency and Utilization • Enhancements through Common Drivers • Security • Improved reliability Benefits, Application, and Uses

  5. Expanding Hardware Capabilities • Efficient sharing of processing resources • Clustering • Ease of Management • OS dependencies • Hardware requirements can be virtualized Benefits, Application, and Uses (cont.)

  6. Experimentation • Testing new software or other configurations before implementation • Sandboxes • Honeypots Benefits, Application, and Uses (cont.)

  7. Microsoft Virtual Server • Free… • Requires Windows 2003 Platform • Runs on x86 32 and 64 bit • VMWare ESX Server • Does not require host operating system (bare metal) • Runs on x86 32 and 64 bit • Integrates with VMWare infrastructure products • Xen • Requires host operating system • NetBSD, Linux, Solaris • GPL software • Runs on x86, PowerPC, and IA-64 Popular Products

  8. Deployment into network virtualization • Complexity of licenses • Deterrent for some businesses • Microsoft’s position • Future trends of consolidation and centralization • New server products (Server 2008) are being built around virtualization Outlook
