Reducing Costs Through Better Server Utilization

Executive Overview

As IT organizations support dynamically changing business priorities and cope with economic
pressures, maintaining datacenter agility is critical By consolidating systems onto the latest
server technology and taking advantage of virtualization techniques, enterprises can optimize
datacenter efficiency, gain flexibility, and reduce operating costs—without sacrificing
performance or impacting service levels.

Virtually every aspect of a business depends on the services provided by corporate


datacenters to stay ahead of changing business conditions. Although the tremendous
resources and capabilities afforded by a large infrastructure prove invaluable, these systems
are often inflexible, hampering agility as companies look to react to evolving world markets.
Indeed, today’s hypercompetitive environment is forcing businesses to find ways to adapt and
innovate to survive and be profitable. Yet, IT organizations are faced with service-level
pressures that necessitate cost reductions and greater operational efficiency. The key to
success is finding the right balance.

This white paper highlights how customers can use innovative virtualization and consolidation
technologies from Oracle to create substantial savings on their investments in Sun servers
from Oracle.
