The History Of Virtualization

IT administrators realized very early that conventional methods of managing IT environments were no longer effective because of dynamic business requirements in agile environment. Demands for faster time to market, installation and up-gradation requests, need to quickly apply security patches to operating systems and applications, and many other management complications drove to a new strategy to endpoint and hosting server handling and management.

Various IT challenges such as low server utilization, complex server-storage migration, inefficient server deployment, agile Business Requirements, increased total cost of ownership, server sprawl, high-availability requirements, disaster-recovery complexity, green IT requirements, automation, and policy driven management led to the innovation called virtualization

Virtualization has been changing information facilities due to its capability to consolidate hardware resources and decrease energy costs. Virtualization is the means of establishment in a new, effective era of cloud computing, pushed by need for spending budget effectively, agility and other challenges in the traditional environment.

For anyone already using a virtualized server environment providing basic IT elasticity and scalability, organizations are very near to being able to progress your facilities to take benefits of the extra advantages provided by private cloud implementations such as self-service, automation, and faster time to market, and deliver your Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
