But due to technical limitations -- such as high I/O requirements -- or organizational politics, certain servers may remain unvirtualized. While the political issues tend to iron themselves out as a virtualization project proves successful, the technical concerns have been more problematic. But a new feature in VMware ESX Server 3.5, NetQueue, will help you virtualize those high-bandwidth servers so your customers get more oomph from server virtualization.

Disaster recovery backup services for virtualized infrastructures

Data backup for disaster recovery in a virtualized environment can be a complex endeavor. That's because when the load on processing and storage is dynamic, it's hard to predict from instance to instance what exactly is running, where it is running and which virtual machines (VMs) need to be maintained. In such an environment, the best alternative is to back up dynamically as much of the processing and data assets as possible on a continual basis. Unlike environments where routine backups can be expected to capture most of the necessary data, a virtual environment often embeds data in a virtual machine that runs infrequently. As a consequence, the virtual machine itself requires backup.
