There is an interesting trend when comparing cloud computing and on-premises virtualization. For almost two years, cloud computing prices have been creeping up. At the same time, the cost of server hardware, especially storage and RAM, has been constantly dropping. Thus, it’s not as easy a question as to whether to pick cloud computing over traditional hardware as it was 5-7 years ago.
What’s more, many businesses are more concerned about costs, security, and performance than the limitless scalability and some advanced value-added services offered by the cloud. Also, most companies have performance-demanding, mission-critical workloads that must be running 24/7, and keeping them in the cloud can be very costly.
So, how about a more cost-effective option, which provides tight security, high performance, and, obviously, high availability for your mission-critical VMs?
Check out this short video, where I will show you how to transform your two VMware vSphere hosts into a full-blown HA cluster in just five easy steps, without spending a lot of money:
