Server virtualization has been a game-changing technology for IT, providing efficiencies and capabilities that just aren’t possible when constrained within a physical world. There are many benefits to an IT organization or business when choosing to implement a server virtualization strategy. With the technology we have today, there’s no reason to remain idle.
While most IT managers started virtualizing to save money on new server hardware, there are also many other benefits. For example, you have greater control of recovering system and application quickly from a disaster and better protection of data. Additionally you have the flexibility to free up IT administration tasks and shift them for important projects and the ability to quickly respond to business demands rather than performing routine maintenance tasks.
