What is Virtualization?
At its core, Virtualization is the process through which companies leverage software to consolidate resources and IT management to provide a higher level of service at a reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In the case of Server Virtualization it's a matter of consolidating the operations of multiple physical servers into virtuaal servers hosted and partitioned on one physical server. Application virtualization addresses the need to centralize end-user applications at the datacenter. Desktop Virtualization brings fully personalized desktops of an entire workforce from individual personal computing devices to the datacenter. Storage virtualization pools resources, and leverages unused storage assets across disparate arrays in a SAN, unifying the management system.
Virtualization technology enables you to do more with less. Whether it's Application, Desktop, Server, or Storage Virtualization, these solutions directly impact the performance end-users need to stay productive, the IT infrastructure's ability to quickly adapt and scale, and the organization's overall ability to operate efficiently and stay ahead, is indispensable.
