A Piece of Cake and More Dynamic Too
Business leaders who opt to virtualize their IT infrastructure find that this decision makes a huge impact. Computing becomes vastly simpler and more efficient, and equipment becomes less expensive to own, maintain, and manage. Applications run like lightning and performance soars. Operations become automated. By consolidating hardware and reducing physical servers (which require power and cooling) tremendous energy savings result. You get more productivity from less equipment. Some businesses find their IT expenses slashed in half.
Kiss Downtime and Outages Goodbye
Perhaps the single most beloved advantage of virtualization is the dramatic increase in uptime it enables. A virtual machine can be deftly moved from one server to another. Resources can be distributed in a virtual world so that server resources are provisioned precisely and fully utilized. New servers can be brought on quickly or taken down, rearranged, reassigned, or redeployed to meet the needs of the moment. Disaster recovery takes minutes: businesses are back on their feet when they just barely realized they were out of step.
The Sky is the Limit!
By abstracting your hardware, businesses get ready for the Cloud, and the future of IT. Companies that use virtual solutions have the option to turn their infrastructure into a private Cloud, or use a combination of new technology. In-house virtual environments are best positioned to easily transition to the cloud, recouping lost real estate and leveraging a redundant cloud environment.
