Reduce Power and Cooling Costs with Virtualization
January 14th, 2011 By: Kevin Normandeau
In a recent survey of the Data Center Knowledge audience, we found many data center operators have a high interest in lowering the power and cooling costs in their data centers. One way of achieving this is through the use of virtualization combined with the deployment of the next generation of servers. This white paper from HP and AMD outlines the impressive results data center operators are achieving through server virtualization.
As virtualization rapidly achieves mainstream status in today’s data centers, it is heightening demand for servers optimized to meet the unique challenges of hosting virtual machines. Organizations looking to maximize the benefits of virtualization are experiencing optimal results using servers specifically designed for virtualized infrastructures.
This white paper discusses the benefits virtualization offers and how the next generation of servers can provide up to 27 times more compute capability than the previous generation servers. Best of all, in the examples shown some operators found these strategies paid for themselves in as little as two months. Click here to download this white paper on server virtualization strategies.
