IT – trends and challenges
• Even though revenues decrease…
…expectations of IT increase

• Tensions:
– – – – – Performance versus cost Security versus mobility Innovation versus reliability and continuity Flexibility versus control Computing growth versus pressure to improve environmental sustainability

IT Manager Pain Points
“…costs are too high…”
Challenge: • Underutilized hardware • Excessive power consumption • Expensive space across data center or branch office

“…can’t meet my SLAs…”
Challenge: •Providing disaster recovery for business continuity for operating systems and applications

“…systems can’t scale quick enough..”
Challenge: Inability to respond quickly to changing needs at desktops and the datacenter

Challenge: • Application incompatibilities

Challenge: •Planned and unplanned downtime affecting server uptime

Challenge: • Server siloing

Why is everyone talking about Virtualization?

Ability to Increase
• Server

Ability to Decrease


• Downtime
• Admin and Maintenance • Hardware Costs • Provisioning Effort • Staffing • Dev and Testing Time

• Service Levels • Flexibility and Agility • Security • Legacy Application Support • Performance

Availability, continuity, and disaster recovery

• Reroute workloads from failed server to backup server • Host legacy applications securely • Restore systems easily

Improved security

• Through:
Centralized Management Streamlined security updates Lower infection transmission risk Coordinated patching & updating

Increased mobility and access

• Flexible desktop & work environment • Take your desktop experience with you • Extend to Mobile devices

Sustainability & Green Computing

Reduction in power consumption sends a positive message from your organization about sustainability & stewardship

Analyst Perspectives

“On average, respondents have virtualized 24% of their servers today and plan to have 48% virtualized in two years.”

“Virtualization of the PC has even more potential than server virtualization… it is going to be much bigger... This will help change the paradigm of desktop computer management in organizations.”

What are analysts saying?

“Consolidation, virtualization, and provisioning are the three hottest trends in servers today. If you haven’t consolidated yet… if you haven’t virtualized your computing resources… and if you haven’t learned how to provision your systems and storage—you’re needlessly wasting your precious operating budget!”
—Joe Clabby, Clabby Analytics

Virtualization Adoption

So… What is Virtualization?
Virtualization is a technique for abstracting the physical characteristics of computing resources from the way other systems, applications, or end users interact with those resources.

Virtualization Key Points
Key Take Aways…
• Drive cost out of IT using Virtualization • Further enables IT as a service • Scales for most companies (small to large enterprise) • Failures are now catastrophes, w/out the right management/ planning/architecture • No need for “religious” discussion between MS and VMWare • Virtualization saves $, but can expose vulnerabilities • Holistic management is the key to administration

• MSFT desktop to datacenter strategy is the smart bet
