Executive Summary

Virtualization of business applications allows IT operations in companies of all sizes to reduce costs, improve IT services and manage risk. The most dramatic cost savings are the result of reducing hardware, space and energy usage, as well as the productivity gains that also lead to cost savings. Service improvements include high availability of x86 application workloads and rapid provisioning of new services to meet the dynamic needs of the business. Virtualization can also mitigate risk to business operations. For example, when faults are detected or server load is too high, workloads can be moved out of harm's way.
