Price: $9.95

Virtualization technologies come in several varieties, the three most popular being server, storage, and user interface. Each offers many options, and choosing the right options for your application is critical to achieving project success. This first article in our Virtualization Decision Support guide leads you through the landscape of server virtualization features and capabilities, pointing out a few pitfalls along the way.

The second article in our guide explains storage virtualization and the additional operational and capital investment savings it offers. The third article looks at User Interface (UI) virtualization technologies. The technologies are maturing, and three leading approaches have emerged: application virtualization, presentation virtualization, and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). All deliver significant economies of scale and improved operational efficiency, and each approach has its pros and cons. Selecting the right approach for your users application needs requires carefully balancing user requirements, application capabilities, and costs.
