Templates for More Efficient Virtualization Management

Many IT departments have utilized server virtualization to solve server sprawl. Virtualization makes provisioning a new OS instance so easy that administrators are often required to manage hundreds of virtual environments with many copies of the operating systems and other applications that have to be updated independently.

SWsoft Virtuozzo, an OS level server virtualization product, addressed this problem through its unique template-based approach to software provisioning that exploits similarities between OS and applications running in different virtual environments. Using templates, administrators can consolidate OS and application management so that only a single instance of a software package is required and managed on a physical machine regardless of the number of virtual environments that use the software.
