Virtualization, Containers, and the Future of the Data Center as We Know It

Virtualization has come a long way since its debut in the '70s. So what's next?

The competitive nature of today’s marketplace requires enterprises to always be on the lookout for technologies that improve efficiency and reduce costs. For many, the ideal solution lies in virtualization, which helps optimize data backup and server utilization via private and public clouds. However, in order to make the best use of a virtualized environment, your team must understand the full scope of the environment including the types of workloads, any legacy applications present, and processes for bridging any gaps between virtualized infrastructure, public clouds, and/or private clouds.

This whitepaper looks at virtualization’s value and challenges, the use of public, private and hybrid clouds, and the impact of containers on the virtualization landscape.

We’ll review:

  • The challenges of virtualization and cloud computing today
  • The potential impact of containers, as well as their pitfalls
  • Other factors impacting the virtualization landscape today, and in the future
