CIOs today must support more revenue generating projects without expanding, rebuilding or moving their data centers. Virtualization is one option to consolidate resources and make this happen. However, virtualizing the data center with existing servers is not the best solution - mainly because older servers have memory issues, lack the power efficiency to keep energy costs down and the ability to scale up and down as needed.
This white paper explains how to create a manageable, scalable environment suited to answer real-time business needs by building out a data center on a standards-based, virtualization-aware, energy-efficient and affordable platform. Plus, learn how virtualization is making the jump from the server realm into the application, mobile and database worlds in the additional resources section.
