In a September press release, Gartner Research said “Virtualization will continue as the highest-impact issue challenging infrastructure and operations through 2015, changing how you manage, how and what you buy, how you deploy, how you plan and how you charge.”
Gartner estimates most of today’s servers are woefully underutilized because of the way they are configured. Traditionally, servers have been set up specializing in one application (mail server, database server, web server, etc.). This results in roughly 80 to 90 percent of the server’s computing capacity remaining unused at any given time.
Retiring old single purpose servers and hosting virtual machines on a single host to handle these business applications not only helps save your company money. You will see faster server deployment, dependable technology for you and your customers, reduced downtime, and disaster recovery.
