In our experience, extending the adoption of virtualization to business critical applications, such as
Oracle, SQL, Exchange, SAP or Enterprise Java, often requires executive sponsorship—sometimes
from multiple organizations. Unfortunately, breaking down siloes, misperceptions and other barriers
to virtualization and getting consensus about how to deliver critical business resources requires both
time and validation. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered.

  • In today’s technology-driven global marketplace, a business can only be as effective as its IT infrastructure. Put simply, business agility depends on IT agility.
  • Yet, studies have shown that 70% or more of IT resources are spent maintaining the status quo, leaving less than 30% for new innovation and business requirements.
  • Caught between shrinking resources and growing business needs, organizations are looking to cloud computing…
  • …to deliver IT as s Service, a more efficient, flexible and cost-effective model for IT.
  • Whether your cloud is private, public or a combination, it must be built on an intelligent virtual infrastructure.
  • Virtualization frees applications, middleware and operating systems from underlying physical hardware, dramatically improving hardware and software license utilization and operational efficiency.
  • The proven platform for virtualization is VMware vSphere. More than 85% of the installed virtual machines in enterprises are VMware-based.
  • Using vSphere, companies have achieved better availability and greater agility, saving up to 80% in datacenter energy costs and reducing capital expenditures between 50 and 60%.
  • But virtualizing infrastructure and basic workloads, like file and print management, are only the first steps towards cloud computing. Your organization won’t be able to deliver IT as a Serviceuntil it virtualizes its business-critical applications, such as Oracle, Exchange, SQL, SAP, or custom Java.According to a recent IDG study with CIOs, 96% of all respondents view the virtualization of business critical applications as a foundation for enabling cloud computing.
  • Many companies have already made this transition. A recent VMware Virtualization Benchmark Study revealed that 43% of organizations have successfully virtualized Tier 1 business critical applications. And those numbers are increasing, as more and more companies run their Oracle, email, and SQL applications on VMware.
  • Companies who have virtualized their apps have seen significant improvements, specifically over 60% improvement in BCDR, security/compliance, and test/dev cycles.
  • All the top Independent Software Vendors provide support for their apps running on VMware. More than 95% of Tier 1 apps matched or even exceeded native performance on VMware.And , in the IDG Research report already cited, 98% of responding CIOs saw positive or no impact to app performance and ISV support across all applications (Oracle, MS, SAP, Java).
  • The benefits gained from virtualizing business-critical applications are essential to staying competitive in today’s global marketplace.
  • Legacy ERP systems, email, databases, and other applications frequently consume large pools of servers that span not just production but test, development and training.
  • Virtualizing these types of applications allows IT to run legacy apps on the latest hardware and OS without migrating or re-writing.
  • IT can also automate resource optimization and eliminate the need to provision dedicated testing, staging, training, and data recovery servers.
  • And virtualization cuts infrastructure and software license costs. Using VMware, IT can achieve 5 times to 10 times server consolidation for large applications and increase utilization of software licenses.
  • VMware automatically ensures application availability, performance, and security at the lowest possible cost.
  • IT can respond to changing demands by scaling up on-the-fly or scaling-out in minutes, as needed.
  • And VMware provides built-in high availability and automated disaster recovery to ensure availability without the complexity of app-specific clustering.
  • Virtualization accelerates the delivery of your applications from weeks to minutes with on-demand self-service provisioning, automated release cycles, and streamlined testing and troubleshooting.
  • It enables IT to extend a flexible cloud-ready infrastructure that can deliver legacy applications as dynamic, cost-efficient, and reliable IT services.
  • Improve your business agility. Let VMware help you virtualize your business-critical applications and enable an intelligent virtual infrastructure. Take the next step to Your Cloud.
