Challenges that are faced in virtualization
  • Application based Complexity – corporate tools don't work or gel together with server and storage networks
  • Sizing of the application in respect to the number of users accessing the application and additional growth requirements add on exceeds projection
  • Multi operating systems and different data pipes used to fix the speed and handle huge volumes during month ends
  • Rural based operations, and couldn't deploy all the virtualization features since the network limits the implementation
  • When the user adds-on during the month end, speed issues cost more upgrade for the solutions high cost
  • Performances based issues and positioning the solutions as per the infrastructure deployed
  • Remote protocol
  • User personalization
  • Virtualized and non virtualized applications synchronize at desktops positioning

Security issues foreseen when adopting virtualization

  • Security required for dynamic changing systems environment
  • Monitoring intra server and both LAN and WAN traffic
  • All new infrastructure are made available based on demand risks more security

Challenges to life cycle management that virtualization poses;

The MF – digital Disruption have converted the digital value to being digital. It has very clearly pointed out how effective we are in operating the same through the available resource at the affordable cost. If the entire world is focused and moving towards the social media presence, try to utilize the expertise availability, further deploy major applications through different channels like mobility appliances for our task force and end customers.

Using strategic virtualized datacenters will adhere to the above requirements support and survive for the dynamic demands of the multiple talents to execute the multi tasking from the team to empower the organization to be digital always. Qualify the mechanics of deploying multiple tools and ensure the investment to be utilized for a long run and make it more productive in the dynamic changing challenging business world.

When we felt the competition of strategic importance to the business information technology solutions (BITS), how the competences are managed and processed to execute the datacenters to be more productive and infrastructure supports the current appliances.

Further the knowledge expect out of the same is driven by best of the practices opted across for uniqueness and competition hard to copy

When we are prepared to opt for it, then the strategic digital initiatives are faster and larger towards digital revolution. Since we operate in this digital era, we would appreciate to get connected through the available channels to ensure the structure and un structure of data which was explored through the business applications supported 24/7 across through the planned strategic data centers.

When we plan strategically virtual data centers through the mix of the available and affordable infrastructure, the business transformation grows by leverage of power and resources multiply the requirements towards dynamic 10X business requirements.

Software defined virtualization to datacenter can fundamentally change the way of the data centers are structured, how to execute the staff with each other, how faster decisions are executed through multi tasked multi lingual collaborations. Mobility and cloud can strategically empower this tasks force to blend with current collaboration virtual technologies, and the software based analytics which support to have better controls.

There is no doubt that digital presents more business opportunities to the strategic data centers to reinvent using virtualized solutions, but moving from the traditional operations to mix of cloud based infrastructure virtualized data enters is the challenge. There are not just technological changes there are also more data center opt challenges which consists of the skill sets, power, people, managing risks, and information security and reputation risks towards the regulators to fix and used it.
