The Advantages of Using Virtualization Technology in the Enterprise

By Thomas Burger


Virtualization technology is possibly the single most important issue in IT and has started a top to bottom overhaul of the computing industry. The growing awareness of the advantages provided by virtualization technology is brought about by economic factors of scarce resources, government regulation, and more competition.

    Virtualization solutions allow multiple operating systems and applications to run in independent partitions all on a single computer. Using virtualization capabilities, one physical computer system can function as multiple "virtual" systems. Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) improves the performance and robustness of today's virtual machine solutions by adding hardware support for efficient virtual machines.

  • Jeff's Notebook: Best Known Methods for using Intel® AMT with client virtualization

    Virtualization of PC's is being used more and more in many companies to help them to maximize their PC resources for a variety of application uses.  Some businesses are using virtualization with client PCs with Intel®vPro™  technology and Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT).

    Intel® Virtualization Technology: Best Practices for Software Vendors


    As companies continue to strive to meet expanding goals with smaller budgets, they increasingly turn to virtualization as a means to consolidate servers. Successful reduction in server count by these means enables organizations to decrease capital expenditures in the form of equipment and facilities costs, as well as ongoing operating expense in areas such as power, cooling, and support.

  • To VT-D or Not to VT-D? A guide on whether to Utilize Direct Device Attach in your Virtualized System?

    Intel VT-D Direct Device Attach allows a Virtual Machine to control an entire PCI-E device (e.g. NIC) while bypassing any VMM interference. The performance benefit will be a dramatic reduction in CPU utilization, but the precise gain will vary.

  • Intel® Active Management Technology on Virtualized PCs: Expected behavior and Best Known Methods for using Intel® AMT with client virtualization


    There are several key differences one must consider when using Intel Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) features on a virtualized client. Those differences, along with Intel’s recommendations, are discussed in this article. It is important to understand those differences in order to adjust the IT processes when managing virtualized clients with Intel Active Management Technology.

    The discussion in this paper only applies to client virtualization solutions that support Intel AMT.

    How to Take Advantage of the Virtualization `Appliance' Model in the Digital Home


    Benefit from the emerging ‘appliance’ model in Digital Home virtualization. An exciting usage model for Intel® Virtualization Technology on desktops and laptops is to create appliances. With Intel Virtualization Technology, one can take the functions of a stand-alone firewall appliance and put them into a PC, completely isolated from everything else in the system.
