IT organizations today face unprecedented challenges. Internal business customers continue to demand rapid delivery of innovative services to respond to outside threats and opportunities. At the same time, it is not unusual for organizations to issue broad mandates to cut back on spending budgets. In these tough times, the adoption of disruptive technologies holds the key to improving efficiency and truly accomplishing more with less. Cloud computing and virtualization as a technology is one such innovation that allows creation of a more dynamic and flexible infrastructure by maximizing resource utilization while increasing IT service delivery.

Virtualization stands to bring enormous cost savings by streamlining server management while also improving the efficiency in space and power usage. With Virtualization technology in place, enterprises can be more agile than they have been in the past. In one series of case studies presented by VMware, for example, companies using virtualization achieved a 67% reduction in total cost of ownership for IT operations after implementation It is therefore no wonder that adoption of virtualization is proceeding at a rapid rate and is most likely being accelerated even further by tough economic times and cost cutting mandates. With Virtualization as the driving technology standard, public reports estimate that in five years, the cloud market will exceed $300 Billion.
