Organizations are increasingly tying their physical systems, networks, and applications to virtualized environments to achieve greater reliability, performance and flexibility in delivering services to business customers. This means tying the loosely coupled world of Service Oriented Architectures with virtualized environments such as VMWare, incorporating application virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructures and virtual lifecycle management. How companies approach this type of transition
EMC has a vision of a unified virtualization infrastructure that includes virtual network, virtual servers, and virtual storage. By managing all three you can get a consistent abstract model of the entire virtual infrastructure. This enables end-to-end dynamic provisioning, load balancing and nondisruptive optimization of all resources. Virtualization of all resources enables dynamic online operation.
