It has become increasingly clear we are in the middle of a profound and inevitable paradigm shift. Cloud computing represents a massive change away from monolithic, single-purpose platforms towards flexible and scalable virtual environments. This shift began with servers but is quickly extending to the client, application, network and storage. As this transition continues to gain momentum, IT plans must be changed in the context of this new world order. Perpetuating conventional IT paradigms is simply not an option.
Why the Change?
Virtualization is the key factor driving this market transition. This technology dramatically improves the efficiency and availability of all components, ensuring that your organization operates effectively. It combines the reliability, security and control of traditional data centers with the flexibility, scalability and on-demand computing of a cloud environment. Beyond server consolidation, virtualization provides easier and more effective disaster recovery and ensures significantly more efficient and flexible use of available resources.
