Thank you Axe, for you have confirmed many things for us…
1.) A shower can now be completed in less than 5 minutes
2.) Virtualization does in fact work wonders
3.) Tech is always on my mind
For those of you in the tech industry, you’re probably more than informed on both the definition and value of “virtualization” within your company, and you may skip to “Paragraph #4”. For those who are not in the former, or are not well versed in the latter, I’ve got your back.
Wiki’s quick take on Virtualization: In computing, refers the act of creating a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, including but not limited to a virtual hardware platform, operating system (OS), storage device, or network resources.
Here’s the skinny for those who understand none of the above: Companies of all sizes in all industries are creating more and more data every year, and are continuously looking for more efficient ways to store and manage it. Companies deploy servers to essentially “serve” the different applications that a company uses. Think Excel, Word, Exchange, SQL, or any other app that you use regularly… Old school management and methodology for these applications is to put one application on one server (along with all of the data that is created on that one application). Unfortunately, that methodology is expensive, unreliable, inefficient. Virtualization was born (shout out to VMWare!). With it, companies are able to pack more resources into their technology environment, while at the same time consolidate and maximize their resources more efficiently, increase flexibility and availability, and gain much easier management of their precious data.
PARAGRAPH #4 In layman’s terms, instead of bringing an entire stack of CD’s with you wherever you go, you now have an iPhone/iPod. Instead of having three separate bottles for shampoo, conditioner, and soap, Axe has brought us the 3-in-1 combo. It is indeed “Total Fresh”.
Virtualization has revolutionized the tech industry, but it’s ideology has a vastly larger reach.
