The values of server virtualization are well understood today. Customers implement
server virtualization to increase server utilization, handle peak loads efficiently,
decrease total cost of ownership (TCO), and streamline server landscapes.
Similarly, storage virtualization helps to address the same challenges as server
virtualization. Storage virtualization also expands beyond the boundaries of physical
resources and helps to control how IT infrastructures adjust to rapidly changing
business demands. Storage virtualization benefits customers through improved
physical resource utilization and improved hardware efficiency, as well as reduced
power and cooling expenses. In addition, consolidation of resources obtained
through virtualization offers measurable returns on investment for today’s
businesses. Finally, virtualization serves as one of the key enablers of cloud
solutions, which are designed to deliver services economically and on demand.
