Decrease Costs, Streamline Maintenance, and Operate Efficiently

White Paper Published By: IBM
Published:  Nov 08, 2012
Type:  White Paper
Length:  11 pages

The physically-focused data center will likely become a relic of bygone days. Server virtualization can reduce capital costs via consolidation, higher device utilization rates, and the ability to redeploy older equipment. Operationalcosts decrease as a result of reducing floor space, power, and cooling needs; streamlining server maintenance and upgrades; and reducing pressure on IT staff. This ESG white paper outlines the Virtualization Maturity Model, how virtualization can decrease costs, its impact on storage, and what challenges comes with it.
