Virtualization is part of an overall trend in enterprise IT that includes autonomic computing. Traditionally, computer hardware has been designed to run a single operating system and a single application, leaving most machines vastly underutilized. Virtualization enables multiple virtual machines to run on one physical machine, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of the single computer.
Virtualization allows for more efficient utilization of network server capacity, simpler storage administration, reduced energy costs, and better use of corporate capital.
- High test cycle times hindering timely releases
- Constraints in the development and test environment due to the amount of testing and inability to execute parallel activities
- Performance bottlenecks later in the life cycle
- Significantly higher defect rates than projected in later phases of testing or production
- High operational and IT costs
Application Virtualization from the Cloud helps clients lower quality assurance costs, shorten release cycles, reduce risks and eliminate critical development and testing constraints. Application Virtualization Services helps clients optimize their software test and delivery life cycle for greater quality and agility in an environment of constant change. Additionally, Application Management Services provides a broad set of testing services, assessments, and accelerators that can help evaluate and start the journey to greater value realization.

With software vendors tending more and more towards delivering their products preinstalled in virtual machines (also known as virtual appliances), much of the traditional installation and configuration work associated with software will disappear.
Implementing virtualization services reduces the number of servers you have to run, which is a direct saving on hardware costs and also on the total amount of energy needed to run hardware and provide cooling. It’s good for the environment. Your system administrators would not have to support so many machines and could then move from firefighting mode to more strategic administration tasks.
