With the coming elections in the USA, we often talk about government spending and the rising costs of many of the government’s programs. We also perceive a pressing need for reductions of spending from many governments. More often than necessary, tax dollars are lost due to the use of obsolete technologies and the purchase of many licenses for proprietary software. Governments could make some great savings thanks to some extremely efficient virtual products like the KVM virtualization.
Now included in the Red Hat/CentOS kernel, this true virtualization technology is free to use and deploy, giving that you have the correct architecture to support it.
Informatization processes can expensive – the estimated cost of the informatization of the healthcare system in Quebec, Canada is $560 millions. The ministry of justice is also facing difficulties, as only 21% of the informatization project was completed as $75 millions were already spent.
KVM VPS – the benefits of virtualization technology
Virtualization in the form of a VPS (Virtual Private Server) can actually take many shapes.. However, the KVM technology would provide to governments and businesses a very stable and cost-effective solution to complex computer needs. Single server use for multiple server purpose divided into VPS saves energy and hardware cost. Add to this the fact that KVM is free and supports both Linux and Windows virtualization. For more information concerning the specifics on virtualizations, you can read this article.
Why choose a VPS?
Easy deployment, simple management solutions, instant setup, the list of advantages of VPSes is too long to complete here. If we take a basic example, government departments often run different servers. Dividing a physical server into several smaller servers will reduce the hardware, maintenance and operating costs.
By using VPSes, there is a possibility to implement a network in which users would only have access to their VPS, and thus it would be fairly easy to manage the amount of bandwidth, disk space, memory, etc. that they are using. This could also be ported to schools and other high-density client environments.
Such a network would also be much safer, as RAID-10 would provide faster I/O and backups could be setup as to be done as snapshots. On top of that, VPSes are fully scalable, which would allow system administrators to increase the available resources when and where they are needed. It is not uncommon to see 10 users using one server, while they would be using 10 separate computers if they were not using virtualization technology. Talk about economy of scale.
This also applies to different server needs. Why have 3 servers for web, database and email server? Create 3 virtual machines and you are good to go!
For all these benefits, and more, I think that governments would definitively save tax payers’ dollars by leveraging the use of their equipment with the help of virtualization.
Setting up a physical network of computers can be expensive and lengthy for organizations, businesses, and governments. Making the choice to implement a VPS network should significantly reduce delays, as the operating systems available are many and the installation time short. Logically, the overall feasibility of a project should also increase if proper expertise is in charge of the project set up.
