Executive Summary

At first blush, server virtualization can be deceptively easy. IT managers can take a handful of less-than-critical applications and consolidate them onto one or a few idle, spare, or underutilized servers. Cobbling together a virtual infrastructure in the lab without the management and other add-ons is a relatively simple and inexpensive proposition. Moving from the lab to production can also be relatively easy when only lower-tier applications are migrated to the virtual infrastructure. The result is low risk/high impact virtualization projects that pay big dividends relative to their initial investment, and that leave IT managers with a strong incentive to virtualize their way up through the application stack.
