Frustrated by the costs of maintain ever larger data centers-or building new ones-many companies are exploring virtualization. Virtualization lets your IT staff turn your data center into an internal cloud of computing resources controlled by a single virtual data center operating system (VDC-OS).
Today's use of virtualization technology allows IT professionals to automatically manage the resources of the physical server to efficiently support multiple operating systems, each supporting different applications. This IDC Technology Assessment presents IDC's view of how virtualization technologies are impacting and will continue to impact operating environments and the operating environment market near- and long-term.
VMware virtualization enables customers to reduce their server TCO and quickly delivers signification ROI. This paper describes commonly used TCO models and looks at several case studies that apply TCO models to virtualization projects. Learn more.
