Virtually a Better Data Center

Executive Summary

Virtualization is the chance to reduce costs and increase productivity. When a business migrates to a virtual IT environment, fewer servers are required to maintain their business applications. This consolidation can lead to cost savings in hardware (fewer servers to purchase and maintain), data center space, and the energy required to power and cool a data center. In addition, disaster recovery is more efficient with virtualization. With a virtual IT environment, one no longer have to have a physical production server and another physical failover server. Instead one can configure virtual failover servers. This reduces the amount of hardware one has to maintain and simplifies recovery efforts.
