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%.
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!
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.
