Virtualization

Network virtualization can make it easier to manage resources—increasing your organization’s agility, improving efficiencies, streamlining capacity and operational costs—while maintaining high service and security standards.

Activo works with industry leaders like Aruba and Cisco to provide virtualization solutions that enable customers to consolidate multiple physical networks onto one virtual one, segment physical networks into logical networks, virtualize servers to consolidate workloads and strengthen disaster recovery, and virtualize desktops to create unified experiences across devices.

Virtualization Key Considerations

How does virtualization automate management?

Virtualization solutions consistently monitor trends in performance and can balance workloads dynamically across hosts. It can also present you with improvement suggestions and implement them for you.

What is hyper-convergence?

Hyper-convergence is a type of infrastructure system that combines software-centric architecture and virtualized resources alongside integrated compute, networking, and storage.

What is the difference between a Type 1 Hypervisor and a Type 2 Hypervisor?

Type 1 Hypervisors “bare metal” run directly on your hardware, which means they provide lower overhead and increased capabilities. They are typically chosen to host Server or multi-VM virtualization or for virtual desktop or application distribution.

Type 2 Hypervisors run on host operating systems and are generally used on desktops or laptops, for testing operating systems, hosting legacy operating systems, and more.

What is clustering?

Clustering refers to a group of hosts capable of communicating with each other and sharing resources. It’s required for redundancy features, automated resources management, and maintenance without downtime.

Why is SAN important?

A storage area network (SAN) houses virtual hard drives and gives your network consistent access to block-level storage.

What are the advantages of implementing virtualization?

The benefits that come with automated infrastructure management are many, but include:

  • Reduce overall hardware costs
  • Minimize your physical footprint
  • Consolidate workloads
  • Lower power consumption
  • Downtime-free maintenance
  • Redundancy
  • Fault tolerance
  • Disaster recovery

Is virtualization secure?

The virtualization solutions Activo provides are fully compliant with ISO, IEC, and TIAA standards.
