Virtualization has gone way past the point of pilot projects and limited scope implementations. Virtualization is driving cloud migration. The moment has arrived to focus on a thorough, optimal approach to virtualization. Getting virtualization right, however, involves overcoming a number of interlocking challenges related to hardware and software. The choice of server platform is critical in ensuring a successful virtualization outcome on several levels, including memory, processing performance, network/processor connections, server density, energy consumption and cooling factors. This paper will discuss the totality of the move to virtualization across three use cases: business agility, consolidation, and business continuity.
It's a total process, a total investment decision that will yield benefits in proportion to the extent it's well thought out. The AMD-powered server platform, with its blending of a design intended to enhance virtualization efforts and unique software and hardware partnerships, delivers a true breakthrough for virtualization and the cloud. High core density can translate into a greater number of VMs per physical machine. Coupled with unique power management capabilities, the result can be a more cost effective and high performing virtualization and cloud solution. Innovative connections with system management tools make it possible to manage and scale your AMD-based virtualization solution cost effectively no matter how complex your business requirements might be.
