The starters might need Safety tips for virtualization, especially as most standard blogs are adapting Virtual Privates Servers, which is in fact deploying Virtualization technology.
Your awareness is important to maintain the safety of Virtualization
The end user, for example the person, suppose an Artist is using a Virtual Dedicated Server; might think, “What I have to do with Virtualization? I am an artist, I have paid the company, it is the duty of the company’s personnel to look after the safety of Virtualization and related stuffs…”
This is where the misconception with Virtualization technology begins. A VPS, deploying the Virtualization technology is not a consumer product. One Guest writer wrote in this blog ago, “even the sweeper of the company should be aware of the basics of Virtualization technology”, very nicely said. When you get an accidental nick on your hand, you are aware to check the validity of your Tetanus toxoid vaccination. It has been a reflex. You need not to know what stabilizer has been used, you need to know, whether you are safe; simply because it is your health.
In the same way, to protect your privacy, you need to know the basic precaution measures you must have to look for when you are using Virtualization.
Examples of where the end user using the Virtualization technology should be aware
Do you know whether Virtuozzo, or any software that is being used to deploy the Virtualization environment for your server, is in the latest version?
Have you noticed that your server, suddenly becoming slow or behaving at moment abnormally, at the next moment its fine?
These are just few examples where every user who is using the Virtualization technology, in some way or other, must be aware. The hackers basically takes the advantage of very basic weak points of a system running Virtualization.
