Focus: On premise virtualisation

Sponsored by ComputerWeekly.com

While analysts predict enterprise investments in on-premise IT will continue to dwindle as time goes on, virtualisation remains a popular means of getting more out of the servers, storage and networking hardware that many still have deployed in their datacentres. Server virtualisation, for example, has allowed datacentre operators to improve the efficiency of their facilities, while reducing the amount of physical floor space the hardware inside takes up. For enterprises that have already gone down the server virtualization route, the next logical step is often to embrace the private cloud deployment model, and ramp up their use of products and services that fall under the software-defined category. In this e-guide, we take a closer a look at the virtualisation of on-premise resources, and find out why it remains such an important process for enterprise datacentre owners to go through.
