Using Project Photon on VMware Fusion/Workstation

Project Photon is a tech preview of an open source, Linux container host runtime optimized for vSphere. Photon is extensible, lightweight, and supports the most common container formats including Docker, Rocket (rkt) and Garden. Project Photon includes a small footprint, yum-compatible, package-based lifecycle management system, and will support an rpm-ostree image-based system versioning. When used with development tools and environments such as VMware Fusion, VMware Workstation, HashiCorp (Vagrant and Atlas) and production runtime environment (vSphere, vCloud Air), Photon allows seamless migration of container based Apps from development to production.

Intel Page Modification Logging, a hardware virtualization feature: study and improvement for virtual machine working set estimation

whitePaper | January 7, 2020

Intel Page Modification Logging (PML) is a novel hardware feature for tracking virtual machine (VM) accessed memory pages. This task is essential in today’s data centers since it allows, among others, checkpointing, live migration and working set size (WSS) estimation. Relying on the Xen hypervisor, this paper studies PML from three angles: power consumption, efficiency, and performance impact on user applications. Our findings are as follows. First, PML does not incur any power consumption overhead. Second, PML reduces by up to 10.18% both VM live migration and checkpointing time. Third, PML slightly reduces by up to 0.95% the performance degradation on applications incurred by live migration and checkpointing.

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.

Managing VMware vSphere Using Microsoft System Center Increases Costs and Complexity

whitePaper | May 18, 2022

A growing number of enterprises have begun to consider multiple hypervisor virtualization solutions. Some vendors claim that they offer hypervisor-agnostic or heterogeneous hypervisor management solutions, as Microsoft Corporation does today with its Microsoft System Center 2012 suite. Microsoft makes this claim for the latest release of its comprehensive System Center suite for systems management, with support not only for Microsoft’s own Hyper-V hypervisor, but also for VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer hypervisors.
