Sample text

The term virtual memory in this context should not be confused with virtual memory as in a paging or swap file as used by many operating systems to extend the amount of physical memory available by using hard disk storage as additional memory. The virtualization platform’s VMM manages the memory addresses allocated to a virtual machine. In some cases, some of the virtual machine’s memory will map to physical memory of the host server and some may actually map to either the host server’s paging or swap file memory or to the virtualization platform’s swap file, if supported.

Both companies have been acquired (VMware by EMC and Connectix by Microsoft) and their technology continues to lead to innovations in the computer industry. While virtualization solves many of the problems for IT, it is not a universal solution to all problems. There are times in which virtualization is not mature enough of a technology to be applied, such as with applications requiring high processor utilization or heavy multiprocessing capabilities (those consuming the resources of a four-way or greater server) or when the need for high end graphics display is needed (such as doing 3D design work in a CAD/CAM application like Unigraphics).

The reverse is also true. A host server that only supports SCSI hard disk drives may have IDE virtual hard disk drives depending on IDE support from virtualization platform. Virtualization platforms usually support at least one of the two hard disk drive interfaces and some support both IDE and SCSI virtual hard disk drives. Virtual hard disk drives exhibit certain characteristics and follow certain standards of the interface used just as in physical servers. In a virtual machine, there are obviously no physical interconnects, cables, or terminators, but the software interfaces are the same as in physical hard disk drives.
