Virtualization has proven to be a powerful tool for enterprises that need to expand their computing resources. It brings flexibility at affordable and predictable costs. Virtualization is now being used in new and more sophisticated ways, providing agility and scalability in virtualized infrastructure platforms.
The first rule of converged systems is that you shouldn’t talk about converged systems—unless you have a specific workload in mind. Indeed, one of the key concepts to understand when it comes to converged systems is that they aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Rather, they should be used for specific workloads.
Creating enterprise computing environments that support flexibility and growth has become one of the IT department’s key charters. Virtualization plays a big role in this endeavor today, enabling IT departments to spin server instances up and down as needed. The next challenge is making more sophisticated use of virtualization in order to effectively meet increasingly time-sensitive and complex business challenges.
Exploring what the cloud offers isn’t enough. CIOs have to go beyond traditional infrastructure to scale and grow.
