As companies grow, their IT infrastructure grows with them: additional servers, more storage, new applications, etc.
This incremental approach to IT growth can soon grow out of hand as applications and servers begin to take up more space and more time to manage, but deliver less cost and performance benefit over time.
The average physical server in an IT environment, for example, typically operates at less than 20% its CPU capacity. In other words, 80% of your servers are effectively doing nothing for your business.
Desktop and server virtualization can help companies get more value and better performance from their hardware investments. Virtualization separates the hardware and software layers of the IT infrastructure, creating a scalable and flexible platform that can dramatically increase performance, simplify IT management and reduce costs by as much as 50% through:
- Increasing server CPU utilization from 15% to 80%;
- Requiring 10X less hardware;
- Launching new applications in 50% to 70% less time;
- Centralizing application and desktop management;
- Saving up to $3,000 per year for each server workload that is virtualized.
