How Does Virtualization Produce Savings?

X86 servers have their limitations, so many organizations need to deploy multiple servers which only operate at a fraction of their capacity in order to keep up with today’s high storage and processing demands. As a result, this creates excessive operating costs and is largely inefficient. Virtualization solves this problem by relying on software to […]
