Trying to grasp the basics of server virtualization? Or, do you face the even more challenging task of explaining and/or pitching server virtualization projects to non-IT execs? Definitions from WhatIs.com or Wikipedia may help, or you could call in VirtualMan.
AccessFlow created an amusing and informative virtualization-based comic series to explain virtualization as a technology. In the first installment, superhero VirtualMan helps frustrated data center manager Ivy Green explain the complicated technology’s benefits to a resistant executive in layman’s terms, saving her from trying to fit yet another physical server into her data center.
Check out this week’s comic and learn how to defeat execs who harbor “a hardware-centric view of the world” with VirtualMan Powers Down.
VirtualMan is not only an amusing diversion that IT professionals will appreciate for its tongue-in-cheek look at the problems that are inherent in today’s data center, but it’s also a valuable educational tool for those that aren’t as familiar with virtualization as they would like. So whether you’re looking for a quick laugh at your desk during work or want to learn more about virtualization with cartoon art accompaniment, AccessFlow’s VirtualMan is definitely worth a peek. Stay tuned; we’ll review more episodes in the coming weeks.
