In the data center the benefits of server virtualization are many. From increased uptime to preventing sever sprawl, this Virtualization Review article discusses the top 10 benefits of server virtualization.

Top 10 reasons why you should choose server virtualization over physical servers in the data center.

Additionally, you'll be able to reduce the datacenter footprint which can include diesel generator costs, UPS costs, network switch costs, rack space and floor space.
