In this tough economic environment, with declining budgets, IT is expected to do more with less. With cost, resource, and time pressures, how do you ensure continued innovation, while meeting your service level agreements (SLAs)? Take control of your IT and datacenter by building a virtualized infrastructure. With VMware virtualization, you can see immediate, quantifiable cost savings, while ensuring true business agility—the ability to rapidly respond to the changing market environment. In this economy, the question is not whether you can afford to virtualize with VMware, but rather “How can you afford not to?”

Regain Control of Datacenter Operating Costs
Today’s IT infrastructure has become increasingly complex and inflexible, with the typical company spending upwards of 70 percent of IT budget simply to maintain the status quo. IT productivity and business value is constrained by this overwhelming complexity.
VMware vSphere and VMware vCenter products help customers simplify infrastructure management, service delivery, and application management by streamlining or eliminating tedious manual tasks, improving visibility, and ensuring service levels in a dynamic IT environment. This dramatically improves productivity, giving you time to focus on strategic projects and create value for the business.
Simplify IT and Reduce Opex with VMware Virtualization
VMware shifts the paradigm from managing “the raw ingredients of IT”, i.e. component-level infrastructure management, to cloud-based delivery of IT services. This dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of managing IT. VMware vSphere and the VMware vCenter Product Family simplify tedious day-to-day tasks such as provisioning, hardware maintenance, patching and capacity, incident, and performance management through policy-based automation. As a result IT resources and budgets can be shifted from tactical maintenance to strategic projects and innovation that dynamically respond to and ultimately drive the business.
VMware Customers are Reducing Operating Costs
VMware customers are shifting away from managing “IT plumbing” to cloud-based delivery of IT services, and dramatically reducing the cost and complexity of managing IT. A recent survey of VMware customers demonstrates these benefits. Two out of three VMware customers surveyed reduced operating costs related to managing their VMware environment by at least 25% compared to a physical environment, and many achieved much greater savings. VMware customers are changing how IT is managed with the VMware vSphere platform and vCenter Product Family.
" "We use VMware software all over our company, and it has saved each individual area time, money and resources. Having seen other virtualization technologies, we know that no competitive product comes even close to the value that VMware delivers to our organization every day." — Bill Frost, Senior IS Engineer, Boise
