Increase Capacity without Increasing Investment
Virtualization is the use of technology to make a single device appear as multiple “virtual” devices. The goal behind virtualization is usually to support the stand alone requirements of individual (or sets of) applications without the cost, delay, and complexity of acquiring and supporting separate systems.
Moving to a virtualized environment can...
- create higher capacity core technology at lower cost per performance unit than disparate assets
- allocate capacity as requirements change
- cohesively manage those disparate, virtual environments
- consume less space, generate less heat, and consume less electricity than their smaller counterparts on a per unit basis
Virtualization is an intelligent precursor to the replacement of aging stand alone servers, storage or core network infrastructure.
