In this article are presented the different ways of virtualization computing resources and advantages and disadvantages of using the virtualization technology. Different designs of the demilitarized zone that can be applied by using the VMware ESX hypervisor are being explained. Different ways to ensure high availability for IT services, using VMware ESX hypervisor are presented and evaluated the virtualized server models. Special focus was on measuring the impact that virtualization has on data center design. This article evaluates performance of virtualized versus physical servers. In the article have presented evaluation based on workloads to compare several key parameters. Results of evaluation confirm that server virtualization technique has good performance and proposed model can save the investment and increasing service performance.
