In today's economic climate, being able to do more with less takes on new meaning. Escalating time to market concerns and other business pressures force organizations to act quickly, with administrators often choosing to avoid possible system security, availability, and performance conflicts by simply deploying only one application per server. The result is a sprawling compute infrastructure that is costly to manage and leaves systems largely underutilized. While consolidation gives enterprises the opportunity to better utilize resources, deploying multiple applications on a single server often results in poor performance, greater operational and management complexity, and potentially application failure.
