Virtualizing High I/O Workloads

July 28, 2009

A server consolidation project typically starts with an assessment of the existing physical estate, resulting in not only the identification of the most suitable virtualization candidates, but conversely, those which have greater resource demands. Often, though not exclusively, these are found to be those machines that provide an organization’s enterprise-class services, such as databases, e-mail, and ERP. While these potential bottlenecks cannot be ignored, a combination of advances in hardware technology and a creative approach to configuration of the virtualized environment can enable the virtualization of such machines. An awareness of these options and considerations will help make the subsequent virtualization of high I/O workloads a success. This white paper aims to provide options and considerations when virtualizing high I/O workloads.
