Virtual Infrastructure and the Value of VMware Integration
A company with $1B in revenue that spends 4% of that revenue on IT will save $20M over a five-year period by pursuing an integrated stack approach. That figure will nearly triple over the period of a decade. Organizations should scrutinize vendors to make sure they are aggressively integrating to VMwares roadmaps as it will drive more business value for virtualized environments.
" Wikibon recently organized several meetings with practitioners in the community to better understanding the requirements, roadmaps and business value of integration for VMware users. We spoke with approximately 20 practitioners, technical experts and ecosystem participants to get a better handle on where VMware is headed." A highly virtualized infrastructure that leverages an integrated stack across storage, backup, networking, management and security will cut IT costs dramatically.
