The undeniable appeal of server virtualization continues to drive broad adoption by mid-sized businesses looking for a more dynamic and less costly data center model to support critical business applications. But choosing to deploy the technology is only the first step in what can be a complex path.
Organizations need to plan, design and deploy a virtual solution that takes some important elements into account. SMBs need to make sure their software and server hardware is compatible with the virtualization platform they are deploying.
Organizations also should map application upgrades to the implementation of a hypervisor to ensure a smooth transition. An effective plan will tie any upgrade to an organization’s overall transformation efforts. The best source for support in this endeavor is a technology provider that can act as a full partner. This paper serves as a guide of what to look for in that supplier.
