Dynamic data center infrastructures use commodity servers, network storage, and full virtualization to create a flexible, scalable architecture that is capable of achieving much higher levels of resource utilization than traditional data centers built on point solutions. The pace of technological change has only quickened, and data center architectures are absorbing the latest technology and continuing to evolve. Many organizations are evaluating the potential benefits of a virtualized cloud infrastructure to meet data center needs. This white paper provides an overview of a dynamic data center infrastructure using server virtualization with Oracle VM and storage virtualization with NetApp storage solutions. It describes how advanced server and storage virtualization can enhance the data center.
