What Will It Take to Accelerate Virtualization Initiatives?

Are you wondering how to increase virtualization penetration rates to fully virtualized data center (80% and above)? Organizations were quick to virtualize their performance-insensitive applications, but for many doing the same with mission-critical applications is considered too risky. These organizations consequently face higher costs and management challenges as virtualized and non-virtualized applications pursue different infrastructure and operational trajectories.

This white paper explores these perceived challenges and outlines best practices for mitigating the risks as you progress towards fully virtualized.
