Managing the Performance of Red Hat Virtual Infrastructures
Enterprises are adopting virtualization in a big way because of the several benefits that virtualization offers including reduced power consumption, reduced space requirements, better resource sharing and utilization, faster provisioning and easier management of virtual machines. Today, enterprises have a choice of virtualization technologies. A survey conducted by Red Hat recently indicated that 70% of customers were either already deploying a dual virtualization vendor strategy or had plans in place to do so. The main factor driving this multi-vendor strategy is the need for cost reduction and flexibility in running the business.
