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!

Telework and Virtualization

Federal agencies are working to provide a complete, secure computing experience to enable employees to ‘work from a distance', or, telework. With VMware, agency-standard PC clients can be quickly provisioned, deployed and managed from the datacenter. Agency personnel can securely access familiar resources through government furnished equipment OR their own PCs. Our customers have saved up to 45% on desktop computing costs, increased employee job satisfaction and reduced the environmental impact from all those commuters. If your agency wants to securely enable telework - or just save money, VMware desktop virtualization is your answer.

Virtualization and Green IT

Did you know that virtualizing servers dramatically reduces datacenter energy consumption and increases server utilization? Average server utilization rates are between 5 and 15%. Would you accept that level of productivity from an employee? Why accept it from a server? Virtualization transforms many underutilized servers to fewer, highly efficient ones. On average, VMware customers are consolidating servers at a rate of 12 to 1. In fact, virtualization reduces datacenter energy costs and consumption from 80 to 90%, and increases server utilization up to 85%. If you're going green, virtualization solutions will help you get there - fast.

Cloud First

February 22nd at 10AM

In OMB's 25-point plan for Federal IT Reform, a mandate for agencies to adopt a Cloud First policy requires agencies to default to a cloud-based solution when evaluating options for new IT initiatives. Virtualization is the key to realizing the true benefits of cloud computing: cost savings, agility, flexibility and better resource utilization.

Feds raise questions about cloud security

Several cyber experts are not sold on how security around cloud computing will work. Some of the doubts come as GSA issues draft requirements for FedRAMP. Others say agencies likely will move to a private cloud first before trusting data to a public provider.
