With shrinking budgets and the pressure to reduce costs, many organizations are turning to server virtualization as a technique to do more with less. This session will review the basics of virtualization and best practices that you can use to benefit from server virtualization today. Of course, adding multiple services to a single piece of hardware also increases risk; therefore, how to avoid mistakes that could affect the security, availability, and performance of mission-critical IT services will also be addressed.
