What do we mean by consolidation?

vmwareSmallConsolidation is one of the key benefits of having a virtualised environment.  This article explains what this means.


Consolidation

Consolidation refers to the method of running multiple computers inside one computer so that simply put, you don't have to buy so much tin!

This helps reduce so called "Server Sprawl" which comes about when lots of users ask for additional services and we end up buying lots of new servers to cover those needs.

Using virtualisation software allows you to provide all the requested services on fewer servers.
