Efficient utilization of shared compute, storage, and networking resources is essential in today’s virtualized data center. VMware estimates that server virtualization has reduced CapEx and OpEx costs by 40-60% in most companies. That’s real value, but is only fully realizable with the right hardware that allows Enterprise IT administrators and Managed Service Providers to leverage compute and capacity resources wherever they are available. QLogic has the answer.
Server virtualization is a key technology to lower costs and implement a flexible data center architecture. New servers are enabling more virtual machines per physical server and supporting virtualization of business-critical applications. The result is a requirement for higher I/O capacity that is driving adoption of 10Gb/s Ethernet (10GbE). This white paper will help optimize customer deployments of VMware vSphere 4.1 using Emulex OneConnect 10GbE adapters.

Virtualization is rapidly changing the way business IT operates, from small local businesses to multinational corporations. If you are reading this, chances are good that your company is already taking advantage of virtualization’s benefits.
Virtualization means that a single underlying piece of hardware, such as a server, runs multiple guest operating systems to create virtual machines, or VMs, with each of them being oblivious to the others. An administrative application, such as VMware, manages the sharing process, allocating hardware resources, memory, and CPU time to each VM as needed. And all applications look at this software construct exactly as if it were a real, physical server — even the VM thinks it’s a real server!
Virtualization makes good financial sense. It enables a single server to offer multiple capabilities that otherwise would require separate servers. It includes native high availability features, so you don’t have to use any more complex clustering tools. This ab
