IT Virtualisation Secrets – How the Experts Organize Their Systems
The IT Virtualisation Secrets eBook by Shawn Hubley is a quick self-help guide to IT virtualisation. It shows the basics of VDI and explains how to set up your private cloud in under an hour. There are five zones in Hubley’s Secrets book: convenience, function, mobility, collaboration, and desktop. Each zone has its focus or benefit.
The convenience zone
This is for those who are IT geeks who want to improve on the traditional desktop PC. They will be looking to reduce costs, get more done in less time, and gain access to new technologies. The Windows virtualisation does this in several ways, including improvements in desktop processing speed, better memory usage (especially when programs are open but not use), increase disk space / Ram speeds, better graphics cards, and other features. These are all design to make your computing experience as comfortable as possible.
The function zone
This is for those who need to implement IT virtualisation in an organisation. They will need to implement the tools and work with IT administrators to plan and execute their virtual deployment. Some of these administrators will be locate in the office itself. In some cases, the administrators can be locate at partner locations. The advantage here is that users are closer to the solution, and in many cases more productive as they are not tie to a desk.
is for those people who use a computer for work or pleasure. This is for individuals who want to move the machine from location to location – whether that is at home, the office, or another location completely. For this zone, many different types of VDI are set up so that the user can easily move the computer to different workspaces. Some of these include Thin Clients, Embed Clients, Remote Platform Machines, and Mobile Virtual Machines. This is a highly useful zone for many IT departments, especially when someone moves out and wants to take their computer with them.
is for those who want to run their tests against the IT infrastructure. Many third-party testing applications are available and these can be use by anyone who needs them. It is also important to note that third-party components can also be use – such as validation tools, code and test generators, etc. Many of these programs are free to use, while others may charge a small fee.
These three zones
make it very easy for anyone to set up and deploy VDI without too much difficulty. Also, the process itself is pretty straightforward – as long as the correct software is select. This is why VDI has been growing in popularity – it is a great way to automate a lot of the processes that are usually time-consuming or complicate. With all of these advantages, it is little wonder that more people are looking into Virtualisation.
