HP Advises Strategic View of Virtualization to Dramatically Cut Costs, Gain Efficiency and Usher in Cloud Benefits Virtualization has become imperative to enterprises as they better manage resources, cut total costs, reduce energy use, and improve IT agility. But virtualization is more than just installing hypervisors. The effects and impacts of virtualization cut across many aspects of IT operations. The complexity of managing virtualization IT runtime environments can easily slip out of control. A proper level of planning and management, however, can assure a substantive economic return on virtualization investments. This podcast examines how virtualization can be applied as a larger process, with sufficient tools for governance that allow for rapid, but reasoned, virtualization adoption. Providing an in-depth look at how virtualization best practices make for the best economic outcome, we're joined by Bob Meyer, the worldwide virtualization lead in HPs' Technology Solutions Group. The discussion is moderated by BriefingsDirect's Dana Gardner. Read a full transcript of the discussion at http://briefingsdirect.blogspot.com/2009/03/hp-advises-strategic-view-on.html.
