Executive Summary

Enterprises have embraced various forms of virtualization during the past few decades. Server virtualization, made popular in the early 2000s through efficient hypervisor technology, made it possible for enterprises to do more with less - increasing datacenter capacity by allocating server workloads on otherwise unused or underused servers. This directly translated into reduced operating costs due to lower total server count, lower power consumption, and lower heat dissipation in the data center. Storage virtualization, another widely used and accepted technology, allows system administrators to pool storage in low-cost arrays and distribute it to servers as required.
