Virtualization is a technology that allows you to transform hardware into software. Use software such as VMware ESX Server to transform or “Virtualize” the hardware resources of an x86-based computer—including the CPU, RAM, hard disk and network controller—to create a fully functional virtual machine that can run its own operating system and applications just like a “real” computer.

  Availability or reliability — keeping applications and services online and available in order to avoid the costs of downtime.

  Consolidation — Merging applications or services onto a small number of systems to avoid the costs due to hardware and maintenance of hardware.

  Performance — Complete tasks more quickly by applying more systems.

  Scalability — Get more work done by applying more systems allowing more work to be done, revenues to be increased and more FreeCell games to be completed in a given unit of time.

  Unified management environment — Manage a number of systems as a single entity to simply management and reduce the costs due to administration and operations.

  Agility — Optimize use of systems, reduce time and complexity of installation.
