For many companies in today’s highly competitive, rapidly digitizing world, data center transformation is not merely a one-time project – it’s a constant challenge. No corporate IT leader should be content merely to revamp their data infrastructure once, then call it a day. Instead, they should always be looking for ways to make their approach to data more dynamic and easier to scale. Ideally, they’d do so in a way that maximizes resource utilization while minimizing costs.
Luckily, that’s exactly the idea behind virtualization, which involves creating a new infrastructure that’s capable of rapidly scaling and facilitating workload development. IT leaders are quickly coming to realize that with virtualization in their toolbox, they’re able to make their operations more agile than ever, and without increasing costs. This is why over 80% of enterprise server workloads today are running on virtual machines, and the market for data center virtualization is expected to reach a total value of $10 billion by 2023.
Having said all of this, there are a number of challenges looming for companies considering new virtualization strategies. For starters, security is more challenging now than it’s ever been – today’s cybercriminals have the resources to attack an entire network simply by infiltrating one machine. On top of that, managing many disparate resources is difficult as well. Virtualized networks can be complex, including a wide range of different machines and workloads, and the objective is to support all of them while maintaining business continuity through and through.
