Look we start up -- David rivers he's -- vice president and chief technology officer.
That northern technology group in TG confinement at NT GIT dot com he joins us now -- from Tampa Florida.
Thanks again David and we -- the -- talking about I don't.
-- -- -- Good good -- Really sort things out try to make it as -- as possible Google -- more -- are tuning in and and learning about technology for the first time more than just the other cellphone -- up.
In layman's terms virtualization give us a rundown for someone -- home maybe he's not familiar with out what exactly are we talking about.
And basic terms virtualization is the delivery.
Processing platforms on a single payers are where.
So a single server our reliability.
Servers can be used to present.
Customers -- multiple servers it.
-- this delivered the assault force or.
You log into a web -- it's on the same server as the authentication system or -- file server or.
There -- -- phone system for that matter.
Right in fact we have a couple of graphics put together for people home and kind of put those those same definitions up there for you.
You know it talks about when you if you -- -- substitutes who.
Fewer servers it means less energy less consumption less maintenance that kind of thing as well right.
You're gonna add to reliability with the fact that your servers can be larger and and have fully reliable or or high reliability systems involved like power supplies and all little things in America a single platform more reliable and then.
At another platform and shared storage and you have a very very highly reliable system that -- support -- -- -- You know what what was interesting -- battle aluminum on the virtualization not a lot at all and it's -- explain it because a lot of viewers and a lot of people we're finding out.
I'll really don't know a lot about virtualization even though it's an important aspect especially if people and they and their own.
In the only industry high tech industry that really should know about it don't do it and we.
-- -- come out recently some numbers that people at home and now we realize.
And virtualization info gap it's called 40% of IT workers.
Had never even heard of virtualization 54% of not IT workers have never heard of virtualization.
But for 68% the ability to access work -- desktop remotely is important for the work is -- Cisco partner survey but it gives you an idea that.
Even though people really haven't heard about this the majority of the population had been -- -- it's almost almost a majority.
They don't even realize what it is and if that's as an important thing I think and maybe you can kind of it.
A difficult task in some respects to get the information out as people understand.
Well it's actually a compliment for virtualization.
If if people are being serviced -- virtualization I don't know -- to seamless immigration and that's the goal of every IT engineer.
Going forward going into the future -- fertilization and at the desk top level a little bit more apparent division usually is actually on virtualized -- -- but.
That particular piece of the virtualization.
Platform is not yet.
Really hit the market as hard -- -- server virtualization side.
By giving more people need to know about though means is that is that imperative.
-- -- -- -- -- I would have that I to individuals -- know about it because of the -- development payment but.
It's gaining a lot in all areas and policies -- virtual version being universally accepted and almost all walks of -- poll.
All industries all.
Major businesses are all using virtual version ever rather than anyway and I've been a lot of places -- It's it's a good cost saving technology.
Energy saving and and -- and your performance on the servers.
Were historically there were only -- fifty or 4% of a server because there was isolated for particular use now they can get.
You know for use in full efficiency from equipment they have.
You know it's funny we have another part of the survey people like to make fun of upper management -- -- seems to be but have a lot of jokes a lot of companies.
The same Cisco's partner service -- the partner survey came out.
-- the virtualization information gap and it's an 80%.
Of senior management are unaware.
How virtualization will benefit their businesses and among those who work and -- -- was superior computer knowledge.
0% have doubts about the benefits of virtualization -- that.
I think of all the -- the parts of the survey that are out there that's probably the one that I think really represents.
The importance and what virtualization can do over the same time -- management may -- isn't dad's office.
To date on on the benefits of it as they should be.
I agree completely and I read the same survey in.
I find that particular number -- hard to believe but I'm in.
I give people room and without when it comes down to understand certain colleges that are represented that when -- -- -- present.
Technical solutions that.
I guess it's unbelievable that 80% could be.
On aware of the benefits but they must not be the ones writing the -- to to implement it.
Any Pol Pot while virtualization mean if you had just give a quick pitch to somebody home he's just starting here this for the first time would you set.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Coming in the very near future for many many people.
It's a very simple technology from a user standpoint and if you're not aware of exactly what it is and the same and same vein as server virtualization.
-- desktop that you would normally uses is run basically from the server and all you just have to dress sizes.
The video screen.
A USB port for your keyboard and a speaker so.
The maintenance and the taxiing and all the all the -- feeding have a virtualized desktop has done in the data center verses -- -- people out there every day Rezko I got a bad hard drive wanted to replace it.
I -- a bad.
The keyboard and bigger places like him you can't get away from all -- side.
But all of -- patch management and the testing of patches all that can be done from the data center.
And when you walk in and next morning and you log into your machine you have the latest patches and and and it's seamless.
So that low volume there are.
-- there is actually did -- appreciate your time thanks for coming on.
And -- clarifying a few things about virtualization what people -- again wolf if they shouldn't care or if your business -- why you should care at least.
Dan rivers vice president chief technology officer at northern technology group -- -- -- and by the -- And TG IT dot com thanks again for joining us from Tampa.
