Your Goal: Lower Costs and Increase Efficiency in a Virtualized Environment
Virtualization has proven to be a breakthrough in networking infrastructure. With its flexibility, adaptability, and reduced technology requirements, virtualization alleviates many problems associated with the traditional client-server environment, such as low resource utilization, management control, and security issues. Unless the transition to virtualization is carefully planned, implemented, and managed, however, IT managers can find themselves contending with a similar set of problems in the new environment. A cohesive virtualization strategy - combined with the tools to develop and implement it - is critical to realizing all the advantages of virtualization.
