The Benefits of Data Center Virtualization

When it comes to data center operations there are a lot of factors to take into consideration. There are many factors that can affect business performance and productivity, including the physical infrastructure, software abstraction, hardware optimization, and more.

One way to simplify things is by using virtualization of the data center. Virtualization enables IT administrators to configure and provide IT resources at will, something that would not be possible without technology. This automation doesn’t just speed up processes, but also ensures that policies are consistently applied and that the right configurations are utilized.

Virtualization is the process of combining servers, storage devices and networking equipment to create an environment in which multiple IT functions are run on the same server. This way, you can maximize server utilization and reduce hardware costs. The ability to dynamically allocate resources increases capacity by preventing under-utilized capacity.

Another benefit of virtualization is the ease in it is possible to deploy new IT services and applications. The deployment of a virtual machine takes minutes, as opposed to the days and hours it takes to set up hardware. This flexibility allows businesses to quickly adapt to market needs and gain a competitive advantage.

IT administrators must be aware that a virtualized data center has its risks. If IT teams are quick to spin up VMs, this could cause VM proliferation. The excessive use of resources and hardware can cause performance degradation as well as increased costs and attack areas.
