ABSTRACT:
This paper discusses the virtualization best practices Dell IT has developed as well as the architecture of its large server farm. Its server farm, which runs virtualization software, provides more than 1,000 test and development environments on fewer than 100 physical servers. This farm enables Dell IT to manage the test and development environments with a small team of administrators, allowing engineers and developers to focus on a wide range of internal projects and minimize time spent setting up test environments.

Read this paper and learn from Dell on how you can use a Scalable Enterprise architecture based on industry-standard hardware and software to achieve tangible benefits today.
