Virtualization

Submission + - When Virtualization Becomes Your Worst Enemy (infoworld.com)

snydeq writes: "Virtualization makes hard tasks easy and big problems bigger, writes Deep End's Paul Venezia. 'Try as we might to keep chaos at bay, there will come a time when the perfect storm hits and everything falls apart. Usually a confluence of elements triggers total meltdown, but sometimes one overlooked weak link fails and causes a cascade of problems that takes an entire network offline. These situations are never easy to deal with and are generally compounded by the fact that admins are feverishly working to fix problems while being bombarded with alarms from other systems that are also failing due to the initial outage. It’s like trying to rebuild a house while it's falling down on top of you.'"
