Server consolidation is crucial to improving a corporation's bottom line by providing savings in hardware, software, maintenance, facility, and labor costs. In today's cost-cutting environment, consolidation efforts can provide significant savings in IT expenditures. Overall potential consolidation benefits include: lower total cost of ownership, improved service levels and availability, and reduced business risks, resulting from consistent business management and resiliency.
