This guide examines strategies for moving an organization toward a dynamic information technology (IT) environment using data center virtualization technologies. As companies approach Dynamic IT, their data centers evolve through a series of stages from manual and reactionary to automated and proactive—from being perceived as cost centers to becoming strategic assets for the company. This guide shows how virtualization can help organizations improve their data centers, control costs, increase security and availability, and enable their business to be more agile. This guide also highlights scenarios that show how virtualization can enable server consolidation, business continuity, and an optimized desktop environment, among others, while examining the Microsoft® technologies that support those solutions. It also explains some of Microsoft’s technology partnership investments that support heterogeneous virtualization environments. Lastly, the appendices in this guide provide information on Microsoft licensing for virtualization.
