The IBM® Virtualization Engine™ is a set of technologies and systems services that can improve IT resource utilization. With Virtualization, system administrators can access and manage resources across a heterogeneous environment. These resources are available virtually, as a single pool, rather than by physical location.
Virtualization Engine systems services simplify IT resource management by virtualizing data, applications, models, and network resources. By binding individual resources into one integrated infrastructure, the IBM Virtualization Engine delivers the following benefits:
- It simplifies the network infrastructure.
- It reduces the cost and complexity by optimizing resource utilization.
- It increases the business value of IT investments.
