Server Virtualization is a game-changer when it comes to reducing costs in the datacenter. Before server virtualization, single applications needed to run on single physical servers in order to ensure application and OS integrity. As server needs continue to expand, purchasing a single server for every business critical application becomes cost prohibitive.
With server virtualization, businesses have a way to trim costs in the datacenter. With Moore’s Law continuing to exponentially increase the speed and resources of x86 servers, few single application instances use more than 5 percent of their physical servers. Server virtualization allows for those machines to be consolidated, at times greater than 10:1 virtual machines to physical machines. With 90 percent or more of x86 servers not needing to be replaced or under warranty, businesses save money.
