  20. 20. Microsoft Confidential 20 Path to the cloud Reduce your maintenance overhead by virtualizing and consolidating servers Done properly, consolidating server hardware through virtualization can create many more business benefits than simply reducing hardware costs. Be aware of the cost of choosing not to migrate Over time the cost of not migrating actually exceeds the cost of the migrating to new software – and without getting any of the added benefits. Turn an Update to a Strategic Opportunity Instead of just updating your OS, take advantage of the opportunity to expand your company’s IT capabilities. Microsoft will support customers in whatever path they choose By migrating to Microsoft’s Cloud OS, you will be able to realize the full potential of a modernized infrastructure, whether on-premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid scenarios.
