The Value of Virtualization is KeyDecember 20, 2010 No Comments
Network World – As we close out 2010 and welcome 2011 it is clear we’re at an interesting juncture in IT, with new opportunities stretching out before us. The key will be what we make of the opportunities and how we position our efforts to capitalize on them.
Virtualization, of course, is what is changing everything. Virtualized servers, virtualized storage, virtualized networking, even desktops.
The highly virtualized organization will be able to squeeze more efficiency out of resources (by increasing utilization rates), more easily accommodate shifts in business priorities (by reallocating assets as needed), call on third party cloud resources when appropriate (reducing costs by doing away with the need to architect for peak demands), and change the way people work (increasing productivity by enabling workers to access their “desktops” from any device, anywhere, and collaborate across time and space).DATA and ANALYTICS
