    Virtualization technologies are rapidly becoming the foundation of modern data centers as IT managers seek
    dramatic improvements in resource and operational efficiencies as well as responsiveness to business needs.
    It is considered a key enabler for consolidation, but it has the potential to play a much larger role in the quest
    towards Green Information Technology (IT), and has become one of the important data center technologies
    to emerge in the last decade.



    Data center virtualization includes an assortment of virtualization actions intended to create a virtualized
    computing environment, such as for use in cloud computing, within a data center. The most common
    implementation of virtualization to date supports business scenarios like consolidation (primary objective),
    business continuity/disaster recovery, test and development, and security. However, virtualization is much
    more than simply consolidating physical servers and cutting data-center costs. The technology has far-
    reaching impacts, from optimum resource utilization at one end to substantial savings in energy, power, and
    management costs at the other.

    Data center virtualization creates more dynamic data centers with frequent configuration changes.
    Regardless of its specific goals, any organization that employs a Datacenter Server Virtualization Lifecycle
    Services can achieve dramatic results and benefits like:

    Strategic Business Benefits like agility & flexible from


      Automated IT processes

      Available resource pools

      Capacity on-demand

      Datacenter Operational Support




Virtualization encourages efficient power management, thus ensuring a Green Data Center. It also facilitates easy
access to data. With data center virtualization, many professionals have extensive mobility in their activity, and
they don’t need to travel with many equipments and can access important files without a problem. With data
being gathered and available from a central environment, better collaboration between employees, clients and
stakeholders is made possible. It also brings about plenty of savings with reduced costs, as it eliminates the
licensing for software. With the costs associated with data backups and IT specialists’ expenses, there is a
reduction in IT overhead as well.


Due to better use of infrastructure, there is increased operational system efficiency and simplified management.
Employees are no longer restricted to work from their desktops, as they can work from any place that has an
Internet connection and any web enabled device thereby improving productivity and efficiency levels.


The benefits of virtualization can sound impressive, but lack of adequate planning can present a number of
challenges. Partner with a service provider who offer several conventional network consulting services that aid in
virtualizing servers, networks, desktops and storage to enjoy optimum benefits.
