It used to be that each new workload demanded a new server. But with the number of applications in your portfolio growing every day, the proliferation of servers may be out of control. You need to consolidate and optimise your IT resources. And you need it all to work with a range of technologies. With virtualisation, you can reduce the number of servers, storage, desktop, and network devices to reduce complexity and make IT management simpler. You can also reduce electricity used to power and cool these systems and save on floor space in your data center.
IBM offers a range of virtualisation solutions for servers and storage – along with services to support planning, implementation and ongoing operations. With support for a range of hypervisors and virtualisation technologies, these offerings can offer your business a number of advantages.
