Companies considering entering into virtualisation technologies for their business practices should first address the management challenges that could occur during a changeover, according to one expert.
A specialist from virtualization.info, a news site about the virtualisation industry, has suggested that although virtualisation has a large host of benefits, it can also cause some technical difficulties to arise which should be addressed by a skilled administrator.
Chief editor of the online information service Kenneth van Surksum said: "Investments in the hardware should be more, so that failure of one hardware component can be mitigated by the hardware - by using dual power supplies and doubling the network connectivity."
He added that businesses should be careful for a so-called virtual machine (VM) sprawl, which could result in an overload of VMs due to the high level of availability of such systems.
A spokesperson for Protiviti UK, a business consulting company, suggested that emerging technologies could provide all organisations with opportunities to change the way they operate while reaping the benefits of increased manageability.
