Video: Resource Scalability with Virtualization

March 4, 2010 by Matt Hunckler

Jake and I brought out the flip cam once again to build on last week’s post on storage redundancy and scalability.

One of the major benefits of virtualization is that it allows you more flexibility to scale your virtualized environment on demand. Cloud computing not only allows you to scale your storage, as discussed last week, but it also allows you to scale your processing power and RAM.

If you’ve ever wondered about the differences between commoditized cloud computing and the enterprise cloud, Jake and I outline some of variables of cloud computing performance and dissect what is commonly referred to as "the resource pool." 

So, watch the video, and let us know what you think!
