Virtualization sounds like the Holy Grail for IT managers—and for executives in the cost-sensitive C-suite. Today’s world-class organizations increasingly see virtualization of their entire enterprise—from servers to security, from software processes to production utilities—as a means to control costs, better allocate resources and increase their return on IT investments.
Virtualization provides a smaller footprint for companies to achieve more benefits across the entire enterprise. Virtualization promises tremendous savings for large enterprises because it offers them ways to create discrete environments in which to develop and test software functionality. In addition, while virtualization has been of tremendous assistance in the development environment by helping companies introduce new applications into a complex operational environment, the real benefit is moving virtualized machines into the production and operating environment enterprise-wide.
The case for virtualization is compelling. IT organizations concerned about underutilization of assets, rising energy costs, improving efficiency in IT infrastructure, simplifying physical architecture, and the constant pressure to reduce technology expenses are adopting server virtualization in the hopes of reaping its potential benefits.
