Understanding virtualization and cloud computing

Virtualization and cloud computing are both transforming the IT landscape, but they do so in distinct ways. If you’re unsure what each technology does, don’t fret. We'll delve into their similarities and differences, comparing their core functionalities, advantages, and best use cases.

How to properly manage your fleet of VMs

A virtual machine (VM) is essentially one piece of software that contains operating systems, software, and files that take a portion of computing resources from your on-premises server. VMs behave like normal files, so you could deploy a fleet of them on any workstation with ease.

Top tips for first-time virtualization users

Unlike most solutions, virtualization technology is not plug and play. It requires you to understand your IT environment and know which aspects could and should be virtualized. This is not something we expect first-time virtualization users to grasp right away, so if you’re planning to implement it, follow these tips.

The problem with too many VMs

Unlike maintaining multiple servers, which have to be manually installed and configured, deploying virtual machines (VMs) require very little effort. By making a few simple adjustments in your virtualization console, you can easily create a virtual instance with enough resources to run even the most demanding apps.
