Virtualization & the Evolution of the Data Center

Software is needed that directs changing workloads to available resources

The early 1980s marked a revolution in the chip industry. System architecture shifted from the board level to the chip level, making it possible to compile a chip.
The data center is undergoing a similar evolution that will enable organizations to compile their dream data center. How? By leveraging software and virtualization.

A New Model
Significant changes can be seen in data centers already. Traditionally, data centers have been comprised of a complex and diverse array of servers performing discrete tasks. Critical business servers have been dependent on dozens or even hundreds of underlying data center components. A single problem in one area often had a cascading impact on other areas. Administrators, in turn, have been left with far too many variables with which to contend.
