Business benefits of virtualization

Open source applications and software expert Bernard Golden explains the power and high performance incentives that virtualization technology offers to businesses.

What are the business benefits of virtualization?

Virtualization enables you to run multiple systems on today's high-performance hardware -- so instead of seven machines running at 10% utilization, you run one machine at 70% utilization.

Beyond those savings, there are personnel savings as you require fewer administrators since you have fewer machines.
