I invite you to join us for an informative webinar with Aberdeen Group, Your Journey to the Cloud: Four Steps to Virtualization Success. Please join me and Dick Csaplar, Senior Research Analyst, Virtualization & Storage at Aberdeen Group.
In a recent Aberdeen survey, IT professionals reported that, on average, they had virtualized 47% of their applications. However, some of the companies within the same study reported virtualization rates as high as 68%. What are the virtualization methods that enabled these leader companies to gain more from virtualization and far exceed the average?
We are rapidly approaching a point where companies desire that most, if not all, business applications get deployed on hypervisors. With many companies now deploying a majority of their applications on virtualized servers, it is possible to examine their infrastructure to see how they did it and what they gained in operational returns. You can gain from their deep virtualization experience.
The webinar will focus on how to gain the maximum advantage from the servers and software that make up your virtualized environment. Hear about the best practices of companies that have done so and what sort of benefits you can expect from your own virtualization efforts.
Topics to be covered in the webcast include:
- The four steps to improved virtualization density and performance
- How to use virtualization performance goals, like CPU utilization and I/O performance, coupled with automated software, to manage applications and greatly reduce the number of servers required to support them
- The benefits that highly virtualized datacenters bring to their organizations including higher application uptime, faster application deployments, and changes to the role and organization of IT departments.
