Virtualization is a logical representation of resources not constrained by physical limitations.
Virtualization, which involves a shift in thinking from physical to logical, improves IT resource utilization by treating your company's physical resources as pools from which virtual resources can be dynamically allocated. Using virtualization in your environment, you are able to consolidate resources such as processors, storage, and networks into a virtual environment which provides the following benefits:
- Consolidation to reduce hardware cost.
- Optimization of workloads.
- IT flexibility and responsiveness.
