Architecting Oracle VM Solution with Sun ZFS Storage Appliances and Sun Servers
The impact of virtualization within the datacenter has shaken IT at its core — changing the dated deployment model of assigning one physical server for each and every application. With virtualization and its ability to install multiple operating systems (OSs) and run them independently on a single server, IT can effectively consolidate hundreds of servers while optimizing resources and simplifying the infrastructure. This consolidation and optimization of resources clearly helps IT reduce datacenter costs by lowering physical server count, energy expenses, and administrative overhead. Additionally, virtualized environments help IT reduce complexity, improve resiliency, and provide high availability.
