To increase agility while lowering costs, IT organizations are using virtualization and cloud-based infrastructure services to consolidate and reduce the number of physical servers and data centers across the enterprise. IDC estimates that, by 2015, more than 20 percent of the information running through servers will do so on virtualized systems. This percentage increases along with the size of the company, with some larger organizations using 100 percent virtualized systems. IDC predicts that, over the next decade, the amount of information managed by enterprise data centers will grow by a factor of 50. As organizations consolidate data backup and disaster recovery operations, WAN optimization plays a key role in mitigating risk without sacrificing performance.
