Executive Summary

As servers have grown increasingly powerful, with multiple cores per CPU socket, gigabytes of memory and terabytes of storage, system administrators have been looking for ways to leverage this power in an effective, reliable and secure fashion. At the same time, many other factors create pressure on IT administrators such as demand for computational resources, decreased project timelines, power consumption, cost of data center space and so on. Virtualization has become the answer to many of these challenges. Server virtualization allows server consolidation by enabling multiple server operating system instances and their applications to run simultaneously on a single hardware platform.
