The Beginner’s Guide to Virtulization
Wondering why you should use virtualization? If you are interested in running more than one operating system on your computer at the same time, then looking further into this option is recommended.
For many years computer users were only able to utilize one operating system on their computer. Due to recent advances in internet technologies, it is now possible to run a virtual instance in one’s actual hardware systems that allow for layer abstraction. Once a computer is virtualized, users are able to access their information from other locations besides their own personal computer.
Wanting to understand some of the reasons why virtualization is quickly growing in its popularity these days? The sheer convenience it offers is one of the more popular reasons why so many people are choosing to go this route. The ability to run several applications that require different operating systems without the need to use different computers or reboot into a different system is extremely convenient. The option for a large system to be separated into smaller systems so many people can access necessary applications is also available and quickly becoming a preferred option due to the different needs different users require.
All one needs is one physical hardware system and they are able to create multiple simulated environments from just this one system. The software required to make this happen is known as a hypervisor and is what directly connects the systems to each other. The hypervisor is responsible for separating the information so it can be properly distributed into the smaller systems.
Why virtualization is increasing in popularity nowadays
Virtualization is becoming more popular nowadays because it is able to solve two different problems. It allows businesses to divide their servers, which not only increased efficiency, it also offers extreme convenience. The second problem that it solves is it allows businesses to run their legacy applications on multiple operating systems.
While the initial process of implementing virtualization technology into a business will require some time as there is a lot of planning involved, more businesses are looking into their consolidation options these days due to the benefits that come with going this route.
Layers of scalability
When virtualization is used to manage workloads, computing abilities become more scalable. The number of system layers simply allows for more advanced usage of computer technologies. These layers can be divided into different categories – desktop, server, file, storage and network - with each category including its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Our recent client’s network consisted of three workstations (one being a laptop) and a standalone server. Their equipment and wiring were everywhere.We started by implementing a business-class network security firewall: a SonicWALL SOHO, followed by two Ubiquiti US-48-500W. We added additional ports for their future PoE IP security cameras — both units and firewall configured…
