Virtualization allows multiple guest operating systems to run on a single hardware platform. This provides tremendous flexibility, portability of systems among hardware, and cost-effective sharing of hardware resources. In this video, learn about the security issues surrounding virtualization, including snapshots, patching, host availability, elasticity, security control testing, and sandboxing.
- [Instructor] Virtualization is taking…data centers by storm.…Between public and private cloud computing,…a significant portion of the world's servers…are now virtualized.…Virtualization technology allows multiple guest…operating systems to run on a single hardware platform.…This technology provides tremendous flexibility,…portability of systems among hardware,…and cost effective sharing of hardware resources.…Now let's take a look at the host security issues…that you'll need to tackle in a virtualized environment.…
One of the most powerful tools granted…by a virtualization platform is the ability…to quickly and easily snapshot systems.…Since a virtualized system doesn't have any actual hardware,…all it is is a file stored on a disk.…You can make a copy of that file…just as you would any other file…and quickly have a copy of the entire system…that you can spin up as a new server.…Let me give that a try.…I'm running the Parallels virtualization platform on my Mac.…As you can see here, I have a guest machine installed…
