Migrating your network services to virtualized environments can help you reduce costs, maximize your hardware utilization, optimize performance and simplify network management.

Typically, a company’s IT infrastructure grows incrementally along with the business, meaning more servers, additional storage and new applications. Over time, applications and servers occupy more space and take more time to manage, but deliver fewer benefits. Studies have shown that most physical servers operate at less than 20 percent of their CPU capacity.

Desktop and server virtualization can turn that reality on its head. Virtualization delivers better performance and greater value from hardware. It separates your infrastructure’s hardware and software layers, creating a scalable, flexible platform that’s easier to manage with improved performance and costs as much as 50 percent less, by:

  1. Increasing server CPU utilization from 15 percent to 80 percent.
  2. Requiring 10 times less hardware.
  3. Launching new applications in 50 to 70 percent less time.
  4. Centralizing application and desktop management.
  5. Saving up to $3,000 per year for each server workload you virtualize.
