This e-book was once first released 3/17/2006, for the reason that then, virtualization has developed, new types have been published and new applied sciences have emereged. The ebook talks approximately VMware GSX which used to be discontinued over a 12 months in the past, ESX 2.5 (Current model is 3.5 with 4.0 round the nook) and MS digital Server that is being changed with Hyper-V on home windows Server 2008. No point out of any opensource alternative (Like Xen) which wasn't mainstream in '06 but. an outstanding learn in case you are drawn to the background of virtualization.

Sample text

How a typical x86 physical server operates is probably already well understood. By using that knowledge, along with the following concepts, further insight will be gained into how virtualization operates and how it differs from the physical server world. Host Servers, Virtual Machines, and Guest Operating Systems The fundamental concept is the virtualization layer. Throughout the book, the term virtualization layer, also generically referred to as virtualization, will refer to a generic implementation of a software partitioning system designed for x86 server hardware.

2 Hardware Partitioning. organizations for long periods of time, usually five or more years at a time. Of course, the vendor reaps the benefit of vendor lock-in because of the expense and difficulty an organization faces when attempting to switch to another vendor. The organization suffers due to cost and inflexibility in changing hardware and software, which makes it difficult to quickly move on to new opportunities. 2) are available from the following vendors (listed with their current technologies): HP—nPartition (Hard Partitions) IBM—LPAR and DLPAR (Logical Partitioning and Dynamic Logical Partitioning) Sun Microsystems—Dynamic System Domains Unisys—Dynamic Partitioning Logical Partitioning Logical partitioning refers to the separation of execution environments within a computing system using logic implemented through software.

In the future, four-way processor support will also be available for virtual machines. Today, Intel offers high-end processors that make available a feature known as HyperThreading (HT). HT technology can optimize instructions sent to a processor so that the processor’s subsystems can, in some cases, simultaneously execute more than one instruction during the same clock cycle. HT is not the same as dual processors, but can give a significant performance increase. Some virtualization platforms can also take advantage of HT technology if it is available in the processors used in the host servers.
