Advanced Server Virtualization: VMware and Microsoft by David Marshall Wade A. Reynolds Dave McCrory

By David Marshall Wade A. Reynolds Dave McCrory

Executives of IT firms are pressured to quick enforce server virtualization options due to major rate reductions. notwithstanding, so much IT execs tasked with deploying virtualization options have very little adventure with the know-how. This creates a excessive call for for info on virtualization and the way to correctly enforce it in a datacenter. complicated Server Virtualization: VMware® and Microsoft® systems within the digital information middle makes a speciality of the center wisdom had to review, enforce, and preserve an atmosphere that's utilizing server virtualization.This ebook emphasizes the layout, implementation and administration of server virtualization from either a technical and a consultative viewpoint. It offers sensible courses and examples, demonstrating how you can competently measurement and review virtualization applied sciences. This quantity isn't really established upon thought, yet as a substitute on actual global adventure within the implementation and administration of huge scale initiatives and environments. presently, there are few specialists during this fairly new box, making this publication a necessary resourceThe booklet is split into significant sections making it either a step by step consultant for studying and imposing server virtualization in addition to a brief reference. The bankruptcy association focuses first on introducing ideas and historical past, after which offers real-world eventualities.

Example text

A virtualization platform refers to a very specific implementation of a virtualization layer. Although most virtualization layer concepts are common among most virtualization platforms, there are differences between the available virtualization platforms. Depending on the virtualization platform, the virtualization layer software may be installed directly on the server hardware or it may be installed into an existing operating system residing on the server hardware. In each case, the virtualization layer’s main component is the Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM), sometimes referred to as the Hypervisor.

The file on the host server representing the dynamic disk at first may only be a few kilobytes in size. Once the process of installing a guest operating system begins, the dynamic disk will grow as new data is written to fill the disk. When files are deleted from a dynamic disk, the file on the host server representing the dynamic disk will not change (it will not shrink). 2). A differencing disk is a special type of dynamic virtual hard disk drive that is dependent on a parent disk. Differencing disks share a parent/child relationship with another virtual hard disk drive in which the differencing disk is the child.

For example, if a host server has three virtual machines all of which have the same guest operating system installed, it is highly likely that the same modules will be loaded by each virtual machine into memory. indd 31 4/13/2006 11:29:21 AM 32 „ Advanced Server Virtualization loaded into memory multiple times, the virtualization platform consolidates common memory artifacts so that they exist only once in physical memory. This reduces the amount of physical memory used and allows more over commitment and less paging to occur.
