If your business is like most, you’ve seen the number of servers required to support your organization increase over the past 10 years. More often than not, business applications reside on their own servers. Servers get sized for peak load times. The average server is under-utilized. Then consider that you typically have a development, test and production environment. That triples the number of servers you need for each application. It’s not uncommon for small companies to have 20 or more servers. For some mid-sized companies, it’s not uncommon to have over 100 servers.
Every year more and more of your IT budget goes to servers, storage and associated costs. That means less money for innovative projects. Less money for transformation projects. Less opportunity for IT to make a positive impact on the business.
Virtualization – Do more with less
Virtualization is all about saving money – providing more IT services with less resources! By eliminating the need to run a single application on a server, or run multiple servers at less than full capacity, the same amount of work can be done with fewer servers. And that not only means less hardware costs, it can also result in lower maintenance costs, less power consumption, and less floor space required.
The advantages of virtualization are being rapidly adopted by both large and mid-sized companies alike.
A recent survey by the Aberdeen Group found that 76% of CIOs in mid-sized firms are implementing, or plan to implement, a virtualization strategy.

What if you could get around this requirement for each application to be on its own server? What if you could consolidate your servers. Well, that’s what virtualization does for you. And that’s why the Aberdeen Group found that 76% of mid-market CIOs are implementing or planning to implement virtualization projects. Virtualization makes complete sense.
