– Có thể chạy như services và chạy vào lúc boot
– Đa người dùng truy cập
– Hỗ trợ web console
– Hỗ trợ đến 64 GB Ram cho mỗi máy ảo
– Khuyên nên chạy cho các OS Server trong việc ảo hóa các ứng dụng server

• VMware Workstation

– $189
– Hỗ trợ Snapshot Manager và chạy script khi snapshot
– Khuyên nên chạy cho các OS máy trạm sử dụng cho việc kiểm thử ứng dụng,patch OS….

• Ngoài ra các bạn có
thể tham khảo thêm các sản phẩm khác ở link dưới đây:

  • Theo nghiên cứu IDC có khoảng  750,000 virtual servers đang hoạt động trong năm 2004, và chắc chắn rằng con số này còn tăng nhiều hơn 5 triệu
    vào năm 2009
  • Các lĩnh vực mà ảo hóa được sử dụng :
    – Hợp nhất các ứng dụng (đặc biệt các ứng dụng cũ)
    – Ảo hóa các ứng dụng server trong môi trường doanh nghiệp
    – Tập trung môi trường máy trạm
    – Việc sử dụng phần cứng hiều quả hơn
    – Cải tiến năng suất của nhân viên IT
    • Cần ít admin hơn
    • Ít phải bảo trì phần cứng and hạ tầng về thống cũng ít hơn
    • Việc triển khai server cũng nhanh hơn
    • Phản ứng nhanh chóng với các yêu cầu đòi hỏi của doanh nghiệp
    • Việc thay thế server diễn ra nhanh chóng
  • Kiểm thử và phát triển
    – Cung cấp các điểm khôi phục hệ thống
    – Cung cấp một mạng máy tính tách biasd
    – Các ứng dụng ảo hóa sẵn dùng có thể download miễn phí
  • Khôi phục khi có sự cố
    – Độc lập với phần cứng nên các OS có thể khôi phục dễ dàng

  • Ngoài ra có thể tham khảo CTO Vmware calculator để biết tổng chi phí tiết kiệm được khi sử dụng sản phẩm ảo hóa của Vmware

What is Virtualization

• Virtualization một cách không rõ ràng đây là một thuật ngữ nói đễ dễ hiểu là chúng ta đang nói về Server Virtualization
• Server virtualization là cách thức mà bạn sử dụng từng máy ảo với phần cứng riêng biệt các máy ảo có thể chạy cùng một thời điểm
• Đối với hầu hết người dùng khi nói đến virtualization thì luôn nghĩ đến hai sản phẩm giống như  MS Virtual PC/Server or VMware Workstation/Server.Chúng ta hãy cùng nhìn vào hình ảnh sau:

• Đây được gọi là Virtualization Management Layer Approach.Host Operating System được gọi là Host. Host ở đây sẽ giao tiếp và phục vụ các request mà hosting  guest operating systems yêu cầu.Host có đủ tài nguyên cần thiết để cung cấp cho tất cả các guest operating systems.
• Và lưu ý khi bạn sử dụng ảo hóa thì hiệu năng sẽ giảm từ 5-20% so với việc không ảo hóa. Tuy nhiên nếu bạn có một sự phân tích đúng đắn và chọn đúng giải pháp ảo hóa thì hiệu năng sẽ giảm không đáng kể.

• Đối với các doanh nghiệp lớn có ngân sách và cần hiệu năng lớn nhất thì có thể sử dụng  Dedicated Virtualization Approach. Các sản phẩm tiêu biểu cho dòng này: VMware ESX Server,Hyper-V. It works like this:Oracle VM, VMware‘s ESX Server, LynxSecure from LynuxWorks, L4 microkernels, Green Hills Software‘s INTEGRITY Padded Cell, VirtualLogix‘s VLX, TRANGO, IBM’s POWER Hypervisor (PR/SM), Microsoft’s Hyper-V (released in June 2008), Xen, Citrix XenServer, Parallels Server (released in 2008), ScaleMP’s vSMP Foundation (released in 2005) and Sun’s Logical Domains Hypervisor.Ta hãy nhìn vào hình dưới đây để hiểu rõ hơn:

Here’s a closer look at the “Virtual Network Operations Center,” a
Second Life demo of IBM’s technology for creating virtual worlds that
provide real-time monitoring of a distributed network of data centers.
It provides a 3D model of your actual racks and servers, along with
multiple screens presenting information about the status of your data
center. There’s also a lounge where your sysadmin avatars can take a
break. So do the virtual sysadmins work while their real-life
counterparts relax? Or is it the other way around?

Hiện Vmware workstation đã cho ra phiên 6.5 với nhiều tính năng mới nâng cấp và cải tiến đáng kể như:

  • Cấu hình và kiểm tra các ứng dụng đa người dùng, cập nhật ứng dụng, và cài đặt các bản vá của hệ thống trên một máy tính duy nhất
  • Dễ dàng khôi phục hay chia sẻ các môi trường kiểm tra, giảm thiếu việc cấu hình lặp lại và thời gian cài đặt phần mềm
  • Hướng dẫn phân luồng qua máy tính bằng cách cho phép sinh viên bắt
    đầu từ trạng thái nguyên thủy và thử nhiệm với nhiều hệ điều hành, ứng
    dụng, công cụ trong các máy ảo bảo mật và độc lập

  • Chạy thử nghiệm phần mềm hay các cấu hình đa người dùng phức tạp trên một máy tính xách tay duy nhất
  • Tăng tốc trợ giúp các vấn đề từ người dùng với thư viện các máy ảo cấu hình sẵn
  • Hỗ trợ nhiều về DirectX 9.0c 3D
  • Ngoài ra tính năng mã hóa VMs có thể sử dụng trên PCs hoặc sao chép đến các thiết bị lưu trữ di động
  • Tính năng mới chưa từng có trong các bản trước Record and Playback đặc biệt hữu dụng cho developers tìm kiếm bugs
  • Tích hợp tính năng virtual debuger vào Visual Studio và Eclipse để bạn có thể triển khai,chạy thử,gỡ rối chương trình trực tiếp trong VM từ IDE của bạn

Vậy đối tượng nào thì nên sử dụng VM Workstaion đó là bất kỳ ai đang làm việc trong lĩnh vực phần mềm muốn kiểm thử phần mềm hoặc các network admin muốn test các tính năng mới của một OS hoặc có thể là ai đó muốn tìm hiểu về các công nghệ ảo hóa của VMware thì bản Workstation này nên thử đầu tiên
