If you’re new to Word Press, then worrying about picking the right VM ware hosting server might be a long ways off. But judging by the rate in which computers are approaching autonomy in their ability to detect, understand, solve, and fix problems on their own, virtualization concerns should be at the forefront of most minds focused on creating web-based content. Similar to the subject of the GPU cloud, virtualization sometimes seems like too advanced an issue for low-rung rookies to worry about. But just like the eventual advent of graphics processing units operating a cloud basis, these issues become the defining aspects of modern reality faster than we ever realize.
Consider the growing popularity of cloud computing in general. Apple wants to use it to propagate the idea that their expensive machines are worth buying because there’s now a place for them all to “meet”. Google wants the concept of the cloud to drive a new age of computer hardware manufacturing that renders everything but the web browser virtually obsolete. Regardless, the idea that the “reality” of the visible mainframe might too become an assumed existence we take for granted while we work remotely is something up-and-coming web site content creators and servers need to be aware of. As the demand for productivity from the workforce rises, so will the demand for computing the runs most of what it can run on its own.
Virtualization means the software and hardware that your websites run on will be so sophisticated that it’ll be able to create a virtual version of itself and anything else up to a certain level of sophistication. Sounds a little convoluted, but what this allows a computer to do is to look at a version of itself from the outside looking in to better understand how problems can be fixed and avoided. Think of it like the difference between you figuring out how to solve a city’s water supply problem with just a ground-view of the geography and figuring it out with a model replica in front of you.
You’re going to want your websites running on servers wherein problems solve themselves as much as possible. This will cut the costs of devoting yourself to a dedicated server, while also removing the reliance on a server manager to make sure problems are fixed in an orderly and timely fashion. With productivity becoming the obsession of the American business ethos, this development should hardly be ignored.
