With the rapid development of the economy and electronic commerce, the exchanging times between the enterprises and users is increasing as geometric series. However, the utilization rate of enterprise servers is only between 15% ~ 30%. This paper illustrates a program about the combination of the Linux platform and virtualization technology. The existing server is transferred into multiple virtual servers with the software VMware Workstation. At the same time, the virtual Linux clients are clustered using the virtual machine (VM) virtualization technology and scheduling algorithm for load balancing. With the adoption of this method, not only the security of the data has been reinforced and the cost of the data been reduced, but also the IT departments are benefited in reducing the whole costs and strengthening its business continuity and data integrity.
