Desktop and application virtualization have steadily gained ground to address a broad range of use cases across organizations of all sizes. According to ESG research, over the past few years, desktop virtualization has consistently risen to be included among the five most commonly-identified IT priorities for 2016, alongside such perennial corporate objectives as fortifying cybersecurity and managing data growth.
At a projected market of over $4B by 2010 (Goldman Sachs), virtualizationhas firmly established itself as one of the most importanttrends in Information Technology. Virtualization is expectedto have a broad influence on the way IT manages infrastructure.Major areas of impact include capital expenditure and ongoingcosts, application deployment, green computing, and storage.
Application and desktop virtualization via Citrix XenApp and
XenDesktop are essential components of mobility strategies in
thousands of security-sensitive organizations, enabling IT to
store virtualized Windows endpoints in a centralized datacenter
or the cloud so they can be easily secured and managed at all
This white paper is a business briefing for C-Level Executives on how integrating a range of technologies - including unified communications, service oriented architecture, virtualization and cloud computing - can transform the productivity and profitability of large enterprises.
ASG's Business Service PortfolioT (BSPT) Virtualization Management provides comprehensive oversight, inspections, discoveries, warnings, diagnostics, and reporting for the critical technology and administrative disciplines involved in virtual workload management. This is all done in parallel with physical systems management.
Virtualization is now mainstream. Enterprises continue to heavily invest in virtualization projects and while short term hardware and cost saving benefits are being achieved, few enterprises achieve anywhere close to the full potential of virtualization as they struggle with new problems like assuring performance and availability, preventing VM sprawl, and maximizing resource utilization
Virtualization continues to grow at 20 percent or more per year, but it is not expected to overtake existing physical architectures at least through 2010. This white paper examines the unique challenges of virtualization and offers tips for its successful management alongside IT's physical deployments.

- How to provide continuous availability for running modern apps that require on-demand dynamic scalability and high operational resiliency
- How the lighweight and modular architecture of WebSphere Liberty provides an ideal foundation to develop and deploy microservices
- How to deliver flexibility to develop, deploy and consume application infrastructure - on-premises or on the cloud, including emerging virtualization technologies such as Docker
- How to manage and monitor thousands of applications and servers with a single management interface for ease of problem determination
Hyper-converged infrastructure has become a “go-to” technology for companies modernizing IT—or for any company looking to simplify, streamline and lower the costs of IT. In hyper-converged infrastructure, compute and storage are natively integrated along with virtualization software into a single x86-based appliance that can be deployed in scale-out clusters.
Server virtualization empowers businesses with significant advantages that include reduced hardware expenses, simplified administration and heightened availability. As a result, nearly 80 percent of server workloads supported by x86 hardware are now running on virtual machines, according to Gartner estimates. However, despite its widespread adoption and benefits, the technology is not without its challenges.
Hyperconvergence collapses the physical components of IT with its virtual aspects into a single appliance form factor. Servers, storage and virtualization layers are bundled into one scalable pool of resources and completely integrated for easier, faster and more costeffective management.
So what lessons can operators learn from the past experience with server virtualization? Beware of merely shifting costs from capital to operating expenditures. Be selective in virtualizing the right resources and functions driven by the business need, and not the technology lure.
Software-defined Networking (SDN) im WAN bietet die Möglichkeit, durch höhere Betriebseffizienz, schnellere Erstellung von Services sowie differenzierte und personalisierte Netzwerk-Services die Kosten zu senken
Gleichzeitig wurden jedoch die Betriebskosten aufgrund komplexeren und arbeitsintensiveren Prozessen in die Höhe getrieben. Teilweise konnten diese Kosten durch vermehrte Integration der Server- und Netzwerkinfrastruktur und erweiterte Funktionalität der Software eingedämmt werden
Las redes definidas por software (SDN) en la WAN permiten reducir los costes gracias al aumento de la eficacia operativa, una mayor velocidad a la hora de crear servicios, y servicios de redes diferenciados y personalizados.
Sin embargo, los costes operativos se dispararon, ya que se necesitó una serie de procesos complejos y laboriosos. Con el tiempo, estos costes se controlaron gracias a una mayor integración de los servidores y la infraestructura de la red, así como a capacidades de software más avanzadas.
