Virtualization and Cloud Computing

Federal agencies want to transform physically distributed server, storage and networking resources into secure, elastic, self-healing resource pools to deliver IT as a service. This is Cloud Computing, and its foundation is Virtualization. Federal agencies want to transform physically distributed server, storage and networking resources into secure, elastic, self-healing resource pools to deliver IT as a service. This is Cloud Computing, and its foundation is Virtualization. When storage, networking and servers are woven together on a virtualization platform, Federal agencies can begin an evolutionary - not revolutionary - journey to Cloud Computing.

New Virtualization and IT ConsolidationTitle

Goals are aggressive for Federal datacenter consolidation. A simple way to dramatically consolidate datacenter infrastructure is virtualizing servers. OMB estimates that only 21% of x86 agency servers are virtualized - Is your data center leveraging virtualization? 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%.

Virtualization: Experience Matters

When it comes to issues like IT consolidation and cloud computing - it can't be overstated: experience matters. More federal IT infrastructure is virtualized on VMware to create elastic self-healing on-demand pools of IT resources than any other platform. In fact, our experience is one of the attributes noted in Gartner's Magic Quadrant on Server Virtualization. Chances are you know a VMware user, most civilian and defense agencies use our technology to benefit their missions. Their VMware experience is evidence of the dramatic benefits virtualization delivers. Users can see up to 90% reduction in costs - 190,000 customers can't be wrong!
