Virtualization is the act of creating a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, including (but not limited to) a virtual computer hardware platform, operating system (OS), storage device, or computer network resources. Virtualization is usually the creation of a system that executes separate from the underlying hardware resources, or the creation of an entire desktop for systems located elsewhere, similar to thin clients.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

August and September have been big months for VMware—from VMworld last month to our new Course of the Month in VMware Professional - Data Center Virtualization. We reached out to Andrew Hancock, resident VMware vExpert, to have a more in-depth discussion about the growth of this field.

I will try this product on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 soon and let you know the result.
By the way are you aware on a upgrade of this product to version 2. It should be released till the end of April 2017 and it seems you can do an export to VMDK (even for those who are interested, Directly on HYPER V VM).

Hi,

I have more articles waiting to be approved.

I will change the images, but this "new" tool to write articles is not very good.

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for your message.  I'll flesh it out a bit and then submit it again.

I have a related question:  If I have a topic/article/post that I only want to post to the Paessler Topics page, does it still go through independent review?  I tagged "paessler" on several articles, but haven't been asked to review or approve them.  Who decides what can appear on our topics page?

(um, to avoid confusion, yes, I'd like to post this article to several topics, after it meets the requirements for an article.  My question is more a hypothetical one, in case I have things to post only to the Paessler topics page at some point).

Thanks for your help!

Hello, ITSystemEngineer.

The most of this integration is already done. We're just waiting for QNAP team to fully migrate their QTS to 64-bit architecture. According to QNAP, the migration should happen with the next QTS release.

Best regards.
