Eight Reasons Why Organizations Should Virtualize

  • Eight Reasons Why Organizations Should Virtualize-

    The level of centralized control that virtualization makes possible takes systems management to an entirely new level. Today’s IT pros are implementing dynamic data center environments consisting of pools of high-performing computing resources that can be centrally managed, readily automated and efficiently maintained. Security and compliance are built in instead of bolted on, and the upgrade path is evolutionary instead of disruptive.

    The level of centralized control that virtualization makes possible takes systems management to an entirely new level. Today’s IT pros are implementing dynamic data center environments consisting of pools of high-performing computing resources that can be centrally managed, readily automated and efficiently maintained. Security and compliance are built in instead of bolted on, and the upgrade path is evolutionary instead of disruptive.

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.
