Delivering sustainable cost reduction by increasing server efficiency and enabling the transition to a cloud-ready architecture.

Virtualization technologies have been around since the 1960s, so why have organizations been so slow to take full advantage? This is mainly because there are some additional issues in set-up and maintenance that must be considered when migrating to virtualized infrastructure. Not only can these issues be overcome, but the resulting highly-efficient virtualized estate facilitates a reduction in maintenance requirements.

This paper articulates the benefits of server virtualization—moving beyond pure cost to increased flexibility and reliability—and outlines the key risks and issues that CIOs should consider before embarking on this important step on the journey to the cloud.
