In order to meet the challenges of running today's data centers, an increasing number of IT organizations like turning to VMware Infrastructure 3 software. The ability to virtualize the data center and deploy applications across a shared pool of server resources allows them to break free of the limitations they face with aging, silo-based applications. One reason is that virtualization enables consolidation. Another is that running more than one operating system and application per server can help to increase utilization, reduce cost, and help organizations work within the space, power, and cooling constraints of their data centers.
