Most organizations in the banking industry have already discovered the potential that server virtualization offers to reduce costs while enabling greater agility and IT responsiveness. Organizations that have embraced virtualization are gaining advantage, and perhaps more importantly in today's economy, driving real savings to the bottom line.
Data centers are cheaper with virtualization, often significantly so. A recent IDC study estimated that by adopting virtualization, organizations can expect savings of 35 to 52 percent in infrastructure costs, which is a significant part of an average data center budget. The more you virtualize, the more you save.
