With virtualization tools like VMware, which made it possible to consolidate the very Wintel platform that opened the Pandora’s box to rapid IT decentralization in the first place, there is no element of the IT environment – including servers, storage, desktop and networks – that cannot be reconfigured in a more effective and efficient form.

As cloud computing makes its way to the top of CIOs’ priority lists, Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, says a well-implemented virtualization plan can be the key to success. Virtualization can lead to a truly converged infrastructure that is more efficient, adaptable to changing business requirements, and easier to maintain and support. Unfortunately, a surprising number of enterprise IT departments don’t have a plan in place that clearly defines the goal for their virtualized IT environment or any next steps beyond virtualization. To help, Logicalis US has created a blueprint for IT transformation, a step-by-step guide to assist IT pros in determining where they are as well as where they’re headed.

Often described as a journey in itself, virtualization has taken IT to new heights from which whole new sets of opportunities come into view. Simply put, IT pros can do things they couldn’t before – centralized control of a distributed environment, for example. Levels of disaster recovery that would have been prohibitively expensive become affordable with virtualization. Run-of-the-mill Windows machines and the services they provide now inherit high availability and fault tolerance by being part of a virtualized framework.
