Server virtualization allows organizations to take advantage of their existing IT investment while providing capabilities and efficiency previously incompatible with physical systems. An effective server virtualization solution provides reduced IT costs, while increasing the efficiency, flexibility and reliability of current hardware.
By maximizing resources, organizations reduce the amount of physical systems needed and improves the value of those currently in-house. Less physical systems mean more space and reduced operating costs overall. In addition, virtualized server solutions allow for multiple operating systems and business critical applications on the same hardware, simplifying management and administration requirements.
- Increase capacity and elasticity through provisioning
- Decrease time to deployment
- Improve flexibility and capitalize on existing IT investments
- Mitigate system downtime and quickly recover from unplanned outages
