Hardware virtualization technology is now par for the course in enterprise IT environments. But what are enterprises supposed to do about the kinds of systems that are not good candidates for hardware virtualization? What about the critical over-utilized applications that create bottlenecks among teams that need access throughout the software development and testing lifecycle? Hardware virtualization has much less utility in this scenario. A strategy to apply in this case is the use of Service Virtualization (SV) to reduce multiple team dependencies on over-utilized systems, allowing them to work in parallel.

This article will explain the utilization patterns encountered in enterprise IT environments, and which type of Virtualization (Hardware virtualization, Service virtualization, or a combination of both) should be applied to receive the greatest value. This paper discusses how to apply the principle of under and over-utilization to apply the right type of virtualization for the needs of the business. Follow the link to learn more about identifying and eliminating the most critical and costly constraints from the enterprise software development and testing lifecycle.
