Virtualization And Storage

Through server virtualization, businesses can operate more than one server on the same piece of hardware and manage multiple servers from a central location.

Less hardware demands

Server virtualization reduces hardware costs by 50 percent. Combined with lower energy costs, this saves businesses $3,000 a year for every server that they consolidate. Firms can reduce the number and types of servers by 10 to 1.

Virtualization and Storage

In tight economic times, businesses have opportunities to use energy-efficient technologies to produce substantial savings. For many businesses, the cost reductions begin with servers because they take up space and require a sizable energy expense.

Through server virtualization, businesses can operate more than one server on the same piece of hardware and manage multiple servers from a central location. Organizations of all sizes are consolidating their servers because of the clear ROI through cost reductions, such as:

Lower Energy Costs

According to the technology research firm Gartner Inc., businesses are expected to spend as much on energy for their data centers as they do on hardware over the next five years. Every virtual server delivers an average of 80 percent reduction in total energy costs.
