Thus IT managers can be more responsive to immediate business needs.
While the basics of virtualization have been around for some time now, the technology is just reaching the point where it ideal for mainstream adoption. This white paper will discuss some of the leading approaches being used to implement virtualization and how virtualization solutions can address IT challenges like:
