Data Center Consolidation
There are no two ways about it, a reduction in hardware is always going to mean a reduction in cost. Raised floor space used for physical data centers can be expensive. Maintenance costs, operating costs, and personnel costs can add up very quickly. Through virtualization, you can reduce these costs and lower your business overhead while maintaining the quality of your service. Freeing up floor space and lowering costs across the board makes virtualization a very attractive option.
Virtualization Means Reduced Administrative Overhead
Configuring applications and manually going through individual services to implement patches can be extremely time consuming. Virtualization makes it simple to apply configuration changes and patches in a single instance and then push those changes out to all workstations in the company quickly and easily. This reduces man-hours and administrative overhead.
