Many executives want their IT infrastructure to be agile and prepared for cloud. Virtualizing computing and storage platforms results in optimized infrastructure that can expand and contract as needed.
The problem: innovation is constrained by flat or declining budgets
While virtualizing platforms helps companies build extra capacity into their enterprise, it often comes at a steep price. And if the history has shown us anything, it’s that commoditization – whether of CPUs, storage or memory – can drive down the cost of IT. But not if it means compromising reliability, manageability or performance.
Comprehensive virtual infrastructure management tools from Red Hat bring infrastructure together so that IT organizations can achieve operational efficiency, support unpredictable changes in capacity and demand, and prepare for the use of private, public and hybrid clouds.
With Red Hat solutions, companies can use open, integrated virtualization solutions and unified management tools that simplify the process of deploying, provisioning, and moving resources on a moment’s notice to satisfy demand.
