ABSTRACT:

Virtualisation has matured rapidly in just a few years. What started out as a testing and development consolidation tool quickly evolved to being applied to production application.

The transition to adopting cloud-like deployments shifts the focus from early capex savings drivers to transforming IT into a service and delivering operational efficiencies. Crucial to the success of this transition to the cloud computing deployment model is the inclusion of tier 1 applications, the most complex and often business critical in nature to an enterprise.

This IDC white paper includes two case studies highlighting the experiences of enterprises virtualising their tier 1 applications, which include Oracle and Microsoft SQL databases and a Microsoft Exchange email system.
