Superior Technical College’s IT Department is planning to use virtual machines in its computer lab. Instructors want to place parent copies of preset computer environments on the classroom server for each unit in a course. Students should be able to build a virtual machine from the parent and then use it for their work in that unit. At the end of the unit, students submit changes they have made, and instructors use students’ changes to give them credit for the unit. The lab computers are limited in terms of memory and CPU capability, so instructors are interested in the use of VDI and think clients for the student computers. The college has asked you to recommend a virtualization product and explain how this environment could be set up. Write a brief report recommending a virtualization product and explaining the reasons for your recommendation.
Case Project 1-3
The IT Department at Universal AeroSpace uses three Windows Server 2016 servers: one for the Accounting Department, one for engineering, and one for the Marketing Department. These servers are running on separate systems that are aging and don’t have the capability for future expansion. The IT Department wants to purchase new hardware and upgrade to Windows Server 2016. To save costs, they would like to use virtualization to consolidate their servers and provide for high-availability in the event of a hardware failure. As a consultant for Computer Technology Services, you have been asked to write a report that includes which data center virtualization product you recommend and why.
Case Project 1-4
The Universal AeroSpace company is planning to implement data center virtualization using VMware vSphere and two Windows servers with a large SAN disk system. Management would like to host applications on the Web to allow staff and students to access technical information from any location using a variety of devices. Because the IT Department is located in a different city, they need to access the virtual server’s administrative console remotely. As a consultant for Computer Technology Services, you have been asked to write a report that includes the benefits of using VDI and which VDI product you recommend and why. The report should include a diagram showing the VDI components that will be needed:Virtualization Assignment
