Virtualization Benefits

Virtualization allows IT departments to create a virtual environment at the workstation, server, or data center level. With this virtualization technology, you can reduce the number of physical servers or computers, while still maintaining performance levels. Benefits include:

  • Reduced costs for physical IT hardware (servers, desktops, etc.)
  • Lower operational and maintenance costs when upgrading your IT environment
  • "Green" IT savings through lower power, cooling, and space costs
