We have previously discussed about basics of server Virtualization Technology in an previous article. The reduction in hardware prices and the presence of open source software making this technology increasingly affordable and if it is properly used, it can offer us more choices of operating systems ,while lowering the costs and bringing a greater control over our infrastructure. The major need to deploy the technology is dependent on type of processor (Tips : Read this post on the capable processors.) – the deployment of Virtualization is dependent on processor core – deployment differs from x86 and x64 processor. A hypervisor or Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM) is a virtualization software , which provides an environment for virtual machines created. Quite obviously, in order to manage the whole system, a specialized software is needed.
