Today virtualization techniques are taking center stage in the battle to reshape the datacenter and reduce operating expenses. Providing the ability to get more work done using fewer resources, virtualization is fast becoming a necessity. Indeed, companies are employing virtualization techniques to consolidate applications and data onto fewer servers, gain the ability to move workloads to systems with available resources on an as-needed basis, support legacy applications on newer systems, provision systems faster, and overcome scalability constraints. Now storage and desktop virtualization mechanisms are taking virtualization to a new level, helping to optimize the entire datacenter infrastructure.
