LOWER COST AND REDUCE OVERHEAD
Using server virtualization, a company can maximize the use of server resources and reduce the number of servers required. The result is server consolidation, which improves efficiency and reduces your hardware footprint, cooling needs and energy costs.
Cloud computing is not the same thing as virtualization; rather, it’s something you can do using virtualization. Cloud computing describes the delivery of shared computing resources on demand through the Internet. Whether or not you are in the cloud, you can start by virtualizing your servers and then move to cloud computing for even more agility and cost savings.
MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK!
IT organizations are challenged by the limitations of traditional servers, which are designed to run just one operating system and application at a time. As a result, even small businesses have to deploy many servers, each operating at just 5 to 15 percent of capacity—highly inefficient by any standard. Virtualization uses software to emulate the existence of hardware and create a virtual computer system. Doing this allows businesses to run more than one virtual system – and multiple operating systems and applications — on a single server. This can provide economies of scale and greater efficiency.
Cloud services can make costs more predictable – for example, using a hosted server instead of purchasing and maintaining your own equipment lets businesses fix expenses at preset amounts each month.
