Getting the MAX From Your Virtualized Environment: Comprehensive Solutions From VMware and IBM
Companies have implemented server virtualization to reduce hardware and space costs in the datacenter. Now, those same companies are poised to virtualize their most critical enterprise applications, the next step towards the goal of a fully-virtualized, efficient computing environment that reduces the cost of hardware, licenses, and labor. For this they require high-performance systems, comprehensive management, recovery capabilities, and well-tuned end-to-end solutions. It's a challenge for IT organizations: a flexible, scalable infrastructure with systems optimized for each workload. Cloud computing holds the promise as a new service consumption and delivery model, characterized by on-demand self-service, ubiquitous network access, location independent resource pooling, and pay-per-use.
