Although these goals still include a cost component, an appropriately designed virtual infrastructure can and should have additional far-ranging benefits to an organization, including improved availability, more agile service provisioning and more efficient expansion of the supporting underlying
Furthermore, as virtualization initiatives have gathered momentum and virtual environments are becoming the norm rather than the exception, the infrastructure necessary to support these environments has exploded, creating new opportunities for inefficiency. Inefficiencies can be introduced in many forms, such as improper configuration, or can be as simple as under- or over-building the overall virtual architecture.
