Virtualization is a proven software technology that makes it possible to run multiple operating systems and applications on the same server at the same time. It’s transforming the IT landscape and fundamentally changing the way that people utilize technology.
Virtualization is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility – not just for large enterprises, but for small and mid-size businesses, too.
Most servers operate at less than 15 percent of capacity, leading to server sprawl and complexity. Server virtualization addresses these inefficiencies by allowing multiple operating systems to run on a single physical server as virtual machines, each with access to the underlying server’s computing resources.
But virtualizing one or two servers is just the beginning. The next step is to aggregate a server cluster into a single consolidated resource – which improves overall efficiency and reduces cost. Server virtualization also enables faster workload deployment, increased application performance and higher availability. Furthermore, as operations get automated, IT becomes simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate.
Deploying desktops as a managed service gives you the opportunity to respond more quickly to changing needs and opportunities. You can reduce costs and increase service by promptly and seamlessly delivering virtualized desktops and applications to branch offices, outsourced and offshore employees and mobile workers on iPad and Android tablets.
