Virtualization improves the efficiency and availability of IT resources and applications. Virtualization starts by eliminating the old "one server, one application" model and runs multiple virtual machines on each physical machine; Additionally, it works on freeing IT administrators from spending too much time managing servers rather than innovating. About 70% of a typical IT budget in a non-virtualized data center goes towards just maintaining the existing infrastructure, with little left for innovation.
An automated data center built on the production-proven virtualization platform lets you respond to market dynamics faster and more efficiently than ever before. While virtualization technology is most popular in the server world, virtualization technology is also being used in data storage, Networks, Applications and inside of operating systems.
