Are you capitalizing on your virtualization opportunities?
Save significant dollars by utilizing the HP, VM ware & Intel solution.


The concepts surrounding Virtualization and Server Consolidation are very important to understand as you consider your options. The details of how to actually proceed are where you need specific real world information. Being able to "look over the shoulder" of those who have undertaken and successfully complete a Virtualization project provides the kind of insight you need to make the best decisions and achieve the highest level of success in your organization.

  • Achieve consolidation ratios of up to 20:1 and saved data center space
  • Reduce application deployment time from an average of 45 days to just 4!
To address the problem, your company may be looking for ways to consolidate stand-alone servers into denser blade and storage systems. This alone is a good first step, but it doesn’t take full advantage of consolidation opportunities. To make greater use of your server and storage resources, you need to add another element to your IT consolidation approaches: virtualization. Virtualization allows you to pool and share your IT resources to increase utilization and reduce costs. Through its ability to consolidate many physical servers into one pool of virtual compute resources, virtualization can result in up to 20:1 ratio of virtual machines on a single physical server. Better still, virtualization enables a change-ready infrastructure in which IT supply can shift quickly to meet changing business demands.
