In order to meet the challenges of running today's data centres, an increasing number of IT organisations are turning to VMware Infrastructure 3 software. The ability to virtualise the data centre and deploy applications across a shared pool of server resources allows organisations to break free of the limitations they face with ageing, silo-based applications. One reason is that virtualisation allows consolidation. Another is that running more than one operating system and application per server can help to increase utilisation, reduce cost and help organisations work within the space, power and cooling constraints of their data centres.
