Why Virtualization Matters to the Enterprise Today
In IT today, the only constant is change. Achieving best business results from a complex enterprise-class IT infrastructure means more than simply deploying new solutions; it means redefining IT as a versatile instrument of business strategy, which can change in parallel with changing demands. Toward that end, many businesses have pursued big-picture strategies such as consolidation - to reduce the number of servers required to support IT services - and virtualization - to unchain those services from specific implementations and redeliver them in a more dynamic, virtual form. Through consolidation and virtualization, the enterprise can achieve a simpler, more scalable, more cost-efficient IT infrastructure that aligns more flexibly with emerging business goals.
