The recession and global economic crisis in 2009 had a profound effect on organizations' investment and operations priorities. Some of these are of a temporary nature, but others accelerated long-developing, fundamental changes in business practices and IT operations.

Faced with a future where organizations need to deploy and effectively use hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of server (and/or desktop) application instances in a virtual environment, companies should consider deploying optimally configured (e.g., densest, greenest, simplest) converged IT infrastructure solutions (server, storage, network) that are managed as unified IT assets.
