Putting Security First in the Newly Virtualized World
It's no wonder why virtualization is sweeping its way through the enterprise at breakneck speed. Virtualized machines and virtualization technology provide numerous technical and cost advantages. As organizations virtualize servers, they are able to consolidate hardware, improve space utilization within the data center, save energy and costs. As systems become virtually migrated in real time, virtualization introduces additional value to business continuity and disaster recovery. Virtualization makes it easier to standardize a server image, speed up deployment times and expedite disaster recovery response times. It also makes it possible to run multiple OS platforms on a single system and segregate applications that may otherwise not have played nicely together. All in all, businesses are finding greater flexibility and efficiency through virtualization.
