With increasing growth, IT-companies have to be able to quickly expand their computing capacity. This is often realized in form of new servers with varying operating environments. The resulting huge server fleet generates considerable costs for operation, management and upgrades.
Server consolidation and –limitation by means of VMware software provides a solution for these problems. The virtual infrastructure enables the isolation of workloads as well as a selective resource allocation (control) of all computing- and I/O-resources of the system. By means of the consolidation of physical systems in the data center on servers with virtual VMware infrastructure, companies benefit from the following advantages:
- Lower total server costs
- Better server utilization
- Higher operating efficiency
- Improved manageability
