Contributor(s): Smadi, Mithkal | Molloy, Chris | Rymarczyk, Jim.
Publisher: Ketchum MC Press 2010Description: xv, 283 p.ISBN: 9781583473542.Subject(s): Information technology | Virtual computer systemsDDC classification: 621.390286 Summary: Virtualizing IT resources can lead to savings of over 50 percent in hardware, maintenance, and energy costs in a data center. The transitional cost of virtualizing large-scale IT infrastructures is hard to estimate, however. If not planned correctly, it can often outweigh the benefits of virtualization for several years. This chapter outlines a "divide and conquer" approach to planning and cost estimation for virtualization transformations. This enables an organization to plan and execute complex virtualization transformations while maximizing its return on investment (ROI) within a favorable payback period.
