Free registration required

Executive Summary

With the current economic climate, companies are looking for opportunities to control IT costs. Server consolidations have long been a source for great cost reductions, and using Parallels Virtuozzo Containers results in a much lower total cost of ownership than traditional hypervisor technologies. The lower total cost of ownership resulting with Parallels Virtuozzo Containers is largely derived from two key points: a higher consolidation ratio and better manageability. A head to head total cost of ownership comparison was done using publicly available consolidation tools, and the results show that a consolidation using Parallels Virtuozzo Containers yields about a 50% lower total cost of ownership over a traditional hypervisor deployment.
