In the Wild West of enterprise computing, the virtualized data center is the New Frontier. As an IT professional, you will know what sort of pressure you’re under to do more with less and still find new efficiencies.
IT managers are also expected to pull a rabbit out of a hat in terms of innovation: digitising processes and creating competitive edge across the business.
Enter virtualization. The beauty of the technology is it translates hardware into software, making IT much more fluid, efficient and manageable. It abstracts traditional hardware functions – like networking, storage and server processing – from the hardware they run on.
As a result, activities that are difficult or costly to do – such as finding efficiencies in the system, scaling up your operations, or making technology more cost-effective – get much easier.
The new frontier of data center virtualization.
But that’s just the start. Virtualization also makes it easier for you to keep your systems running; or restore operations when they fail. It helps you avoid vendor lock-in; and provision resources faster than ever before.
