VMware View Optimization Guide for Windows 7

This document provides guidelines for configuring a standard Windows 7 image to be used within a VMware View™ environment, providing administrators with the information necessary to create a standard image of Windows 7 leveraging the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit or by utilizing a script-based approach to optimize a traditionally installed Windows 7 virtual machine.

The Virtualization Imperative for Client Operating Systems Migration

This report presents the findings of a study that Forrester Consulting conducted for VMware in November 2009 to evaluate firms' client operating system migration plans. The report highlights the key considerations associated with simplifying application deployments through application virtualization and automating desktop provisioning and management through desktop virtualization.

Riverbed Services Platform Feature Brief

Consolidation and virtualization are hot trends in IT, helping organizations increase their flexibility in delivering valuable services and reduce costs. The enhanced Riverbed® Services Platform (RSP) provides customers with the capability to run up to five additional services and applications virtually on VMware in a protected partition on the Steelhead® appliance. This revolutionary approach allows customers to deploy local services in all their branch offices without the need to deploy and maintain full-blown servers to run the applications. The business benefits are minimizing the hardware needed at the branch office, enabling companies to consolidate IT operations even further, reducing costs, and simplifying administration, all while still delivering high quality local services. Read this Feature Brief for more information.

Virtualizing Business Critical Applications

Most IT organizations are already using virtualization to consolidate their infrastructure, reduce costs and improve service levels through live migration and automated failover of virtual machines. Many have already extended these benefits to their most demanding applications, including enterprise databases and high-volume business, middleware and productivity applications. Others are interested in virtualizing their business-critical applications but want to be absolutely certain they can deliver the same or better performance, scalability and availability in a virtualized environment. In the vast majority of cases, they can. Learn how VMware vSphere 4 and the latest Intel Xeon process-based servers deliver up to 275 percent better virtualization performance than previous generations, with lower overhead and improved scalability. Most enterprise applications can be supported as well or better in a virtualized environment than on dedicated physical servers, and at much lower cost.

How business-critical database workloads perform when virtualized with Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series-based servers and VMware vSphere™

This white paper documents the performance of mission-critical database workloads running on servers equipped with the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series and VMware vSphere 4. Using standard and nonstandard testing tools, these tests replicate real-world scenarios found in production environments. Specifically, these tests show that the combination of the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series and VMware vSphere 4 can allow a company to achieve greater performance while dramatically reducing operating costs by using less energy and space. Servers built using this combination deliver up to 3.5 times better virtualization performance than previous generations, as well as near-native performance on enterprise applications such as database, productivity, and business applications running in a virtual environment. This combination also permits greater VM density, resulting in 3.7 times higher consolidation than servers built on the prior-generation processors. As a result, organizations can realize both capital and operational expense savings due to decreased hardware requirements and improved utilization.
