Virtualization is not a silver bullet for consolidating servers.


Benefits of virtualization technology

Benefits of Virtualization Technology

Production Server Consolidation

  • Reduce TCO by maximizing hardware utilization and consolidating workloads

    Business Continuity Management

  • Help reduce scheduled and unscheduled downtime

    Dynamic Datacenter

  • Leverage the benefits of virtualization to create a more agile infrastructure

    Test and Development

  • Maximize test hardware, reducing costs, improving lifecycle management and improving test coverage


Self managing dynamic systems

Self-Managing Dynamic Systems

  • Traditional systems live within boundaries

    • Applications have fixed dedicated resources

    • Results in need for more responsive infrastructure

    • Wasted capacity

  • Virtual systems break down some of these boundaries

    • Virtualization allows for better resource utilization

  • Dynamic systems go further

    • Resources are intelligently (policy) & flexibly assigned as needs change
