A lot has been said about Virtualization and how it can be used to implement utility computing and derive cost savings in terms of expenditure on the physical infrastructure for enterprise users. Below we’ve listed the key benefits why enterprises are increasingly implementing Virtualization:
Ø Increased user density: The user density on each server increases by a factor of at least 3 and also the number of users being managed by each server manager increases by 5 folds. This obviously is because of the fact that virtualization helps grant resources partially to users according to their perceived usage requirements and can always transfer the idle resources to a process or user who requires it urgently.
Ø Scalability: As discussed before, virtualization facilitates scalability greatly. An application once virtualized can be scaled as per requirement by transferring it to a server which can fulfill its requirements easily and this can be done without losing any time in a few clicks of a button.
Ø Reduced Costs: Virtualization results in reduced labor costs, downtime costs and hardware costs. These savings can be felt across the board and in the case of future deployments by the customers, they can move to server Oss hence increasing their cost savings dramatically.
Ø Improved availability of resources: The availability of resources improves drastically and this reduces system downtime occurrences significantly. Since resources can be re-allocated across servers as and when released from their existing processes, their productivity as well as availability improves hence negating the need of any system downtime.
