Virtualization

We have searched the depths of our blog to provide you with the latest IT articles on Virtualization. Get Connected Today!

Remember when Windows Server 2003 debuted? A highlight that had us all excited were the advances in IT security built in by design. We’re talking about a re-engineered Internet Information Services with strong administrator control both over how Web applications run and user authentication to websites, folders and documents; a standards-based TCP/IP infrastructure, including support for IPv6; and software restriction policies to thwart inadvertently introduced gotcha code and unauthorized program installs.

Server 2003 EOS: A Migration Path for SMBs

Stay Agile, Competitive with Windows Server 2012

by Sarah Senftle | 02.20.15

For large enterprises, migrating to Windows Server 2012 before Microsoft officially ends support for Server 2003 on July 14, 2015 is a massive project.   Hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of servers might have to be replaced as part of the move to a modern, cloud-enabling server OS—all while keeping both migrated and unmigrated employees connected to the network and the business running without any downtime.

For small- and medium-sized businesses, a Server 2003 migration may be less complex, but it is no less critical. Once Microsoft pulls the plug, Server 2003 will be on borrowed time.

VDI: Past and Present

Get Your Virtualization Engines Running Using Cisco UCS

by Tony D'Ancona | 02.17.15

There have been a lot of changes in desktop virtualization in the past year or so. Where once we were pretty happy if we could deliver a virtual desktop directly to a client that had specific software for receiving a virtual desktop, today we have so many more options. In reality, the VDI story has changed to the EUC story. VDI is certainly one of the important use cases (for users that are well-connected to the network), but end-user computing now addresses the other aspects, from a disconnected user to a modern application delivery system that gives us SSO access to apps, SAAS, content and desktops, through devices with a HTML5 browsers—all managed with an Enterprise Mobility Manager.

Migrating from Microsoft Windows Server 2003 to Microsoft Windows Server 2012 is your chance to take your relationship with virtualization to the next level. It’s also an opportunity to upgrade to high-performance, power-efficient servers that provide a fast ROI.

Windows Server 2003 has been a reliable workhorse for over a decade—a bastion of corporate computing available in multiple editions targeted toward particular sizes and types of business. But on July 14, Microsoft will stop releasing critical patches for it.

Are You Ready for the Windows Server 2012 Migration?

6 Server 2012 Facts to Help Get You to the Other Side

by Stacy Cote | 02.03.15

With Windows Server 2003 going end of support, it’s important for you to know where to go from a licensing and product stand point. Windows Server 2012 was designed with the advent of cloud strategy in mind. Servers need to run multiple applications at once, which is why some of the editions that were available have been eliminated from the line in favor of smarter solutions that cover more ground especially for heavily virtualized environments. Below are some basic things to note, that are essential to answer some questions you may have through your migration.
