Server Virtualization

A Condensed, More Powerful Data Center


Virtualization is a no-brainer for the modern data center. Instead of hosting each application on its own designated server, virtualization transforms applications into digital software. One physical server can now host dozens of applications as virtual machines with no decrease in performance or availability. Condense your data center, power less hardware, and save as much as 50% on recurring technology expenses.

Virtualization and the 21st Century Data Center

Reduced Hardware and Operating Costs
With less equipment to purchase and maintain, hardware and operating costs could be reduced by as much as 50%, and energy costs by 80%*.

Greater Flexibility
Virtualized data centers gain the ability to move workloads dynamically within a resource pool for greater flexibility.

Scale existing apps or deploy new ones by spinning up more virtual machines.

Reduced Provisioning Time
Provision new servers up to 70% faster** through virtualization. There’s no new hardware to buy. There’s no installation required. Everything is done digitally from the hypervisor manager.

Use Servers to their Full Ability
The physical servers that remain in the data center will make full use of their compute power. Run a collection of virtual machines on one server instead of a single application.

Disaster Recovery
Additional disaster recovery options become available through virtualization.
