A Recipe for Conducting Successful Virtualization Projects
Organizations are increasingly striving to improve their utilization of their enterprise infrastructures and to provide their IT teams with tools allowing them to gain more management flexibility when delivering business-critical data to end-users. One of the key strategies that organizations are implementing to achieve this goal is virtualization of their servers, storage, and desktops.Typically, these projects allow organizations to achieve measurable business benefits such as reductions in the cost of IT infrastructure management as well as the cost of power and facilities. However, even though virtualization projects make it easier for organizations to make the most of their infrastructure, they also make it more difficult to achieve full visibility into the performance of business-critical applications. This results in issues with the availability and speed of applications as well as longer times to troubleshoot and repair performance issues.
