Virtual Instruments Whitepaper - Private Cloud Computing Performance

It’s no secret that cloud computing is enabled by advancements in virtualisation, and with all the benefits of virtualisation come some challenges. There are many tools to help identify performance problems, but at the end of the day, the whole subject of performance is a sort of a black art, not quite a science. A great deal of performance optimisation is still dependent on rules of thumb and best guesses, plus brute-force over-provisioning. But it doesn’t have to be. There’s a new class of tools out there designed to work with, and optimize the ‘virtual infrastructure’, the building block of cloud computing, and with those tools come some new IT best practices.

Virtual Instruments White Paper - Infrastructure Performance

Most of the enterprises that have adopted it have realized substantial hard dollar savings from virtualization, driven primarily by the benefits derived from server consolidation. These enterprises have also discovered that many management activities like provisioning, recovering from server failure, providing for disaster recovery, backup, and security can be accomplished in a more agile and consistent manner across a variety of systems using virtualization as the underlying technology. This has allowed IT agility to become an enabling driver of business agility, turning virtualization from an IT cost saving exercise, into a potential source of strategic advantage for the business.
