How Customers Are Cutting Costs and Building Value with Microsoft Virtualization
By virtualizing servers, organizations can better manage the data center. Server consolidation can cut costs by decreasing the amount of physical servers needed.
Businesses have never been under more pressure to reduce costs and operate more efficiently. Virtualization is one of the most effective means for making this happen. It provides powerful, tangible ways to streamline many traditionally time-consuming processes and minimize the resources needed to deploy and manage IT resources.
This white paper examines how Microsoft customers are using virtualization technology to simplify their IT infrastructure, IT processes, and save money. It begins by discussing the core savings inherent in using virtualization to consolidate servers and accelerate desktop deployment and, as a result, how this helps organizations gain significant time, space and power savings, as well as environmental benefits. We then look at additional savings customers are achieving due to the unique way that Microsoft built virtualization technologies into our server, desktop and management platforms. Finally, we show how Microsoft enables even further savings through innovative pricing and licensing, which lower both acquisition and ongoing ownership costs.
