Virtualization Overview

Cover Image
Virtualization can be applied to several different layers within IT: networks, storage, laptops, server hardware, operating systems and applications. Blending these technologies together creates a virtualization infrastructure that is non-disruptive for users and provides IT with pooled resources across the enterprise. Thus IT managers can be more responsive to immediate business needs.

While the basics of virtualization have been around for some time now, the technology is just reaching the point where it ideal for mainstream adoption. This white paper will discuss some of the leading approaches being used to implement virtualization and how virtualization solutions can address IT challenges like:

  • Server consolidation and containment
  • Test and development optimization
  • Business continuity
  • Enterprise desktops
