Lower Energy Consumption With Server and HBA Virtualization
With the rising cost of energy, it is no wonder Gartner Group reported that server virtualization is one of three "disruptive technologies" that will change the face of IT. Server virtualization greatly reduces the number of physical servers required to support the ever-growing data center. Fewer physical servers results in savings throughout the data center, and in particular lowers energy costs associated with operating and cooling the servers. HBA virtualization is a key component to any server virtualization project. By implementing server virtualization with Emulex Virtual HBA technology, energy and management costs are reduced, while asset utilization and total cost of ownership (TCO) are improved.
