Virtualization As A Key Component Of Cloud Computing

Virtualization as a key component of cloud computing

Virtualization is one of the key components of the cloud computing paradigm, especially in infrastructure as a service model where the mentioned technology is essential to provide a large set of computing resources. Some experts even define cloud computing as simple as virtualized hardware and software plus advanced monitoring and resource management technologies.

Virtualization has changed the ICT, and some of its benefits include reduction of hardware vendor lock-in, faster disaster recovery, ability to extend life of old legacy applications, and reduction of operational costs.

However, implementation of virtualization is rarely simple in enterprise environment. If you use virtualization on your machine only to run some legacy applications or have multiple operating systems available, this technology is very simple. You have to install chosen virtualization software, create/modify the image, and start to work. Even for absolute beginners, there are a lot of free online tutorials. On the other hand, if you deal with multiple database systems, complex enterprise applications where some application are on-premise and some deployed on different cloud services, the story becomes a quite different one. In the aforementioned case, you will need a great amount of computing resources and sophisticated virtualization expertise. Therefore, any initiative that freely provides computing resources, complex virtualization software, and expert knowledge is welcome.

One of the most exciting parts about working in ICT is also the ability to attend conferences where you can discuss your work and complex problems with people from your field. Currently, the budget for conferences has been reduced at many businesses. Part of solution could be virtual online conferences that enable networking opportunities without leaving your office. I’ve attended a few of these online events in the past, and my experience is positive, I have always managed to learn something useful and meet interesting people from my field.

There’s a good event coming up October 22 for anyone interested in learning more about virtualization. Online VMware Forum 2013 is free to attend, and the best part is that they offer the people capability to experiment with VMWare products free with hands on lab online. Lab is running in minutes with full technical capabilities, and at the same time you can chat live with VMware experts who can answer your questions. You can also navigate in a 3D virtual environment with interactive booths, and test the virtualization solutions without having to install anything on your machine. Attending this event you can also learn how to simplify your IT infrastructure and hear VMWare and virtualization experts’ discussions on how to find solutions to complex IT problems.

The agenda for the event include themes such as: vSphere and vCloud Suite, Virtualization Management, Virtualization 101, Cloud Management, End User Computing, Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery
