294 KB | 3 files |  PDF, DOC

This book chapter discusses how virtualization saves money on hardware ; the case for virtualization's more efficient use of IT personnel; the link between virtualization and lower IT operations costs and virtualization's track record in terms of using less energy.

Virtualization for Dummies gives you a thorough introduction to this hot topic and helps you evaluate if making the switch to a virtual environment is right for you. Implementing virtualization allows for more efficient utilization of network server capacity, simpler storage administration, reduced energy costs, and better use of corporate capital. In other words: virtualization helps you save money, energy, and space.

This fun and friendly guide starts with a detailed overview of exactly what virtualization is and exactly how it works, and then takes you on a tour of the benefits of a virtualized environment, such as added space in overcrowded data centers, lower operations costs through more efficient infrastructure administration, and reduced energy costs through server consolidation.

This excerpt contains the entire second chapter entitled, "Making a Business Case for Virtualization." This excerpt discusses how virtualization both saves money on hardware and reduces hardware risk; the case for virtualization's more efficient use of IT personnel; the link between virtualization and lower IT operations costs and virtualization's track record in terms of using less energy.
