So, you’re in the market for a virtualized server and yet you aren’t exactly sure what you should be paying attention to or what the determining factors of your virtualization investment should be? No worries – we got you.With our easy to read guide on virtualization in Cloud Computing, you will learn everything you need to allow you to make an informed and confident decision on your virtualized server provider.
Virtualization in Cloud Computing
Before we get into virtualized storage or server virtualization benefits, we need to talk about the types of virtualization in Cloud Computing. Virtualization solutions come in varying forms, the most popular of which are VPS OpenVZ, KVM, Xen, VMWare and containers. While all are very popular and all serve their purpose, the type of virtualization your virtual server host utilizes will be out of your hands and frankly, unless you are looking for infinite scalability (Containers are best for this), the type of virtualization tech won’t matter much to you. Xen, OpenVZ, KVM, VMWare, as long as your server is virtualized, the type of virtualized server hosting won’t affect your Cloud hosting needs. What will affect your Cloud hosting needs are the type of resources, price points and virtualized storage your virtual server provider supplies you with.
Virtualization and Cloud Computing
One of the most important factors in your virtual server investment is the resources you are purchasing. We all know that one of the major benefits of virtual server solutions and virtualized server environments is scalability, i.e. the ability of your solution to grow or shrink with your needs. This means that although your initial virtual server resource needs might be on the low end, 2GB of RAM, 20GB of Disk Space, 1TB of Bandwidth and 1 CPU Core, the most important aspect of your virtual server is in its ability to scale upwards with your needs. Remember, your business plans on growing, as such, with more customer needs, you will need a website capable of handling higher traffic and bandwidth needs.More importantly though is the ability of your virtualized web server host to allow for scaling beyond a single VPS. When your needs get large enough (and hopefully your business will allow for this), the single most important aspect of server virtualization vendors is the ability of the vendor to scale you beyond a single virtual server or ten virtual servers or 100. When you need to grow, your providers needs to scale immediately and easily. Make sure to look for this.
Virtualized Storage & Virtualized Server Recovery
For companies looking into virtualization solutions, one of the guiding factors and biggest hurdles to cross is virtualized storage, virtualized security and virtualized server recovery. Whether you invest your money in a VPS or a hybrid server, everyone needs to know their information – their secure data – is safe, and if need be, fully recoverable when disaster strikes. Now, while we aren’t going to take the time to chat about the complexities of virtualized server farm security and how VPS data backups work, we will say when investing in a Cloud provider, it is highly important that you ask about virtualization security and georedundant data backups. Without security and the ability to backup your data, you’re asking for problems in the Cloud.
