Server Virtualization: Leveraging the Potential of Your IT Assets
An Avanade White Paper
The data center has become a critical part of the IT infrastructure for many companies, providing the technical foundation for an agile, innovative business. So disorder in the data center, such as competing business application models and security gaps, can lead to serious threats to employee collaboration, customer acquisition, and business growth.
Server virtualization has become a compelling technology to help organizations gain better control over their data centers, cut IT costs, and streamline operations. A key benefit of server virtualization is that it helps consolidate server hardware, resulting in a more adaptive and environmentally friendly data center.
