Transforming IT Service Delivery by Leveraging Private Clouds

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The transformation of IT began several years ago when VMware introduced server virtualization to increase the efficiency, utilization of servers and help customers consolidate data centers and gain agility and availability in the data centers. Since then, there has been a consistent progress towards virtualizing other services inside data centers such as storage, networking and security services. The end goal of this is to build truly service oriented shared infrastructure data centers which can be deployed in minutes. Traditionally, networks have not kept up with server virtualization, so even though servers can be brought up very quickly, networks have to be still provisioned manually which causes impedance and slows down the application delivery. In order to truly harness the private cloud movement, network virtualization is a key. (As cited in abstract.) *Publication date not found.
