Microsoft Hyper-V may be popular because it comes for free as part of the Windows Server license, but that doesn’t mean IT managers should ignore best practices when managing a virtual environment. This is especially true as the hypervisor market becomes more commoditized.

Vendors today offer the actual virtualization layer for free and make their profit on management. Therefore it’s essential to examine each vendor’s suite of management tools and to choose what’s best for your enterprise’s infrastructure.

There are Hyper-V tools for small, midsized and large organizations and they can benefit each environment.

Managing Hyper-V installations
Virtualization isn’t just for large IT shops anymore. In fact, it has led to major savings for smaller businesses with just a few servers. Using Hyper-V’s integrated tools makes sense in these scenarios. For instance, the built-in Hyper-V Manager is the obvious no-cost choice when managing only one or two servers since IT managers can create and manage them on a single system easily.

    Then integrating both the application using Inspire can benefit us over the following limitations:

    1. Non-value adding manual efforts needed to update each application with data from the other application.
    2. Risk of Primavera and SAP project structures becoming disparate entities as tasks are performed in respective applications with no synchronization of ‘Project Execution’ and ‘Project Purchasing & Controlling’ perspectives.
    3. High quality plan and schedule in Primavera may not have actual transaction data to close planning loop; Efficiently executed SAP transactions may not have dynamic linkage with latest plan updates and finer details of project tasks.
    4. ‘Sub-optimal’ business process split across technical landscapes can not leverage on individual strengths of good business applications.

    Systems integrator is important part of Cloud Computing Platform & provides the strategy of the complicated process used to design a cloud platform. It includes well defined architecture to find the resources and the characteristics which have to be included for cloud computing. Integrators plan the users cloud strategy implementation. Integrators have knowledge about data center creation and also allow more accurate private and hybrid cloud creation.

    Virtualization is the basis of the cloud computing and there are many platforms that are available like VMware is a technology that provides the provision to create private cloud and provide a bridge to connect external cloud with private cloud. There are three key features that have to be identified to make a private cloud that is:
    ► Cloud Operating System.
    ► Manage the Service Level Policies.
    ► Virtualization keeps the user level and the back-end level concepts different from each other so that a seamless environment can be created between both.
