Overview: The more tightly bound an application is to its underlying platform, the less capital efficiencies are realized. The IT waste associated with under utilized hardware resources has been clearly demonstrated, which in turn has spawned the creation of datacenter consolidation programs that devise ways to more tightly compress the application infrastructure footprint onto existing hardware resources.
Breaking the bonds that tie an application to an instance of an operating system and tie an instance of an operating system to a specific physical server will free resources so that they can dynamically adapt to business needs in real time. This facilitates additional application footprint consolidation and frees resources for other purposes. IT capital is more efficiently utilized and the additional flexibility these measures produce enables significant responsiveness to business drivers.
