    Virtual Server Farm


    About Virtual Server Farm

     
     
    OUHK starts using the server virtualization technology since 2006. Server virtualization has the benefits of reducing hardware costs, reducing physical space and energy, faster server provisioning and easier to maintain. Currently, OUHK Virtual Server Farm is built on VMWare ESXi platform. It supports emulations of Intel X64 servers running in Windows and Linux operating systems as Virtual Machines (VM).
     
     

    Guideline for application

     
    System owner should understand the usage and prepare well the requirement of the system before the application of a VM. The followings are some pre-requisitions:
    • Appoint an administrator for the system
    • Purchase all the required software and application licenses
    • Estimate the size of the system
    • Prepare the required network connection requirement for firewall release
    • Keep monitor and ongoing security of the system
