CUNA Council Offers Virtual Server Study
The CUNA Technology Council is offering a white paper on server virtualization, the practice of splitting one computer server into multiple functioning machines.
The white paper looks at the benefits of virtualization, citing examples such as $171 million Heritage CU in Madison, Wis., going from 16 server boxes to two host machines and $3.5 billion Mid-Atlantic Corporate FCU in Middletown, Pa., going from 100 to eight.
CUNA's "Technology and Spending Report" said nearly 70% of the credit unions of $200 million or more that it surveyed said they were planning to use virtual server technology within the next three years.
The paper studies various models of virtualization delivery. Related topics, including storage-area networks and desktop virtualization, also are included.
CUNA offers more than 200 white papers free to council members and at $50 each to nonmembers. They are available at www.cunacouncils.org.
