Server consolidation and storage consolidation

The Goals

With the number of applications in your portfolio growing every day, you can’t afford to add a new server and storage system for each new workload. Server consolidation and storage consolidation with virtualization can help you optimize your IT resources. With virtualization, 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.
