White House should heed lessons of reorgs past

Nearly every President since Richard Nixon tried to revamp how the government works in one way or another, and few have found any real success. Experts say the focus should be getting Congressional buy-in first, and not promising cost savings.

VMware customers achieve average consolidation ratios of 12 to 1 - some as high as 50-1. Performance isn't compromised , since the average server still operates between 5 and 15% of capacity according to industry analysts. Consolidating means working smarter, and leveraging underutilized resources you already have. In fact, virtualization maximizes server utilization and reduces energy costs and consumption up to 90%.
