Proven Virtualisation Scalability With The Sun Fire X4600 Server
Source: Sun Microsystems
This white paper looks at how organisation can consolidate a number of applications from a number of under-utilised servers and ease the space, power, and cooling crunch. Consolidate from many to few servers to help reduce maintenance costs. As a side benefit, upgrade legacy applications to run on modern hardware without re-installing the operating-system or application software. Consolidation requires virtualisation, and specifically high-performance, scalable virtualisation platforms that can host multiple guest operating systems and applications on the same server.
