Virtualization Management with SUSE Manager

whitePaper | November 10, 2019

Virtualization is the means by which IT administrators create virtual resources, such as hardware platforms, storage devices, network resources and more. There are quite a few tools that enable the creation of virtual resources (such as Xen and KVM), but what about the management of those tools? That’s where SUSE Manager comes in. The current iteration of SUSE Manager enables an admin to work with VMs via the following feature set.

Dell EMC VxRail vSAN Stretched-Cluster Planning Guide

whitePaper | November 20, 2019

vCenter Server is the centralized platform for managing a VMware environment. It is the primary point of management for both server virtualization and vSAN and is the enabling technology for advanced capabilities such as vMotion, Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) and HA. vCenter scales to enterprise levels where a single vCenter can support up to 1000 hosts (VxRail nodes) and 10,000 virtual machines. vCenter supports a logical hierarchy of datacenters, clusters, and hosts, which allow resources to be segregated by use cases or lines of business and allow resources to be moved as needed dynamically. This is all done from a single interface.

Security of the VMware vSphere Hypervisor.

whitePaper | May 1, 2022

Virtualization addresses IT’s most pressing challenge: the infrastructure sprawl that compels IT departments to channel 70 percent of their budget into maintenance, leaving scant resources for business-building innovation. The difficulty stems from the architecture of today’s x86 computers: they’re designed to run just one operating system (OS) and application at a time. As a result, even small data centers must deploy many servers, each operating at just 5–15 percent of capacity—highly inefficient by any standard.
