Lotus Domino Server—it's just an email server, so let's move on.... Just kidding!

Virtualization Can Reduce Both Energy and Capital Costs

Regardless of size, most organizations are reaping the rewards, and addressing the challenges, of server virtualization.

Written by Vision Solutions

Editor's Note: This article introduces the white paper "The Future—and Present—is Virtual" available for free from the MC White Paper Center.


Virtualization has received considerable coverage in the IT trade press over the past few years, but is virtual real for the majority of IT shops? The answer is clear: yes, it is. According to IDC, despite 2009 being a very tough year for the IT industry and the economy in general, the virtual machine software market grew by 1.4 percent to $1.8 billion that year. And a growing body of evidence shows that virtualization is being adopted by a large percentage of companies in all industries and in all but the smallest of organizations—and even in some of them as well.
