Midsize Businesses Benefit from Virtualisation Claims Frost & Sullivan10 May 2012 18:18:00
Frost & Sullivan has recently published a white paper outlining the benefits virtualisation continues to engender for midsize businesses.
The research, titled ‘Virtualization for Midsize Businesses: Keep Your Foot on the Accelerator’, focusses on the enhanced capabilities virtualisation has delivered across servers, storage, networks and desktops, “especially for midsize businesses with heightened strategic priorities in innovation and revenue growth.”
Previously, operating system software and its applications were tied to a dedicated server. This worked fine when workload demand was constant but as this is seldom the case the result is low utilisation and wasted energy when servers endure a lull in activity.
However, with virtualised solutions systems enjoy greater speed, flexibility, become more energy efficient and can be tailored to suit individual business needs.
