Virtualized Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure
In this tough economic environment, with declining budgets, IT is expected to do more with less. With cost, resource, and time pressures, how do you ensure continued innovation, while meeting your organizational goals? Take control of your IT and datacenter by building a virtualized infrastructure. With virtualization, you can see immediate, quantifiable cost savings, while ensuring true business agility—the ability to rapidly respond to the changing market environment. The question is not whether you can afford to virtualize, but rather “How can you afford not to?”
Server virtualization is a proven technology that enables multiple virtual machines to run on a single physical server. Each virtual machine is completely isolated from other virtual machines and is decoupled from the underlying host by a thin layer of software known as a hypervisor. This allows each virtual machine to run different operating systems and applications. Because the machines have been decoupled from the underlying host, the guest can also be moved from one physical server host to another while running; this is known as live migration. These attributes are transforming how organizations approach virtual computing.
Green IT Infrastructure
Reduce the energy demands of your datacenter through server consolidation and dynamic management of computer assets across a pool of servers. Deliver the resources you need where you need them with server virtualization.
Reduce energy costs by 80%.
Power down servers without affecting applications or users
Green your datacenter while decreasing costs and improving service levels
Traditional application-level clustering solutions tend to be costly, hard to implement and difficult to manage. With virtualization, you can increase the baseline level of availability for all your applications and ensure service level agreements are met. Slash planned downtime, prevent unplanned downtime and recover rapidly from outages as you:
Eliminate planned downtime for common maintenance operations
Provide higher availability independent of hardware, operating system, and applications
Recover rapidly from server failures with automatic virtual machine restarts
Ensure continuous availability against server failures.
