The mega-trend in IT right now is virtualization of everything, building the foundation for cloud computing. Virtualization
is the process of creating a software-based (or virtual) representation of something rather than a physical one. Virtualization
can apply to applications, servers, storage, and networks and is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses
while boosting efficiency and agility for businesses of all sizes. Workloads get deployed faster, performance and availability
increases, and operations become automated, resulting in IT that’s simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate.
Additional benefits include:
- Reduced capital and operating costs
- Downtime that is minimzed or eliminated
- Increased IT productivity, efficiency, agility and responsiveness
- Provisioning applications and resources faster
- Enabling business continuity and disaster recovery
- Simplified data center management
- Creation of a true Software-Defined Data Center
