Part I - Cost Justification

How a physical system will perform in the virtual environment is a key concern as users begin to look to extend the reach of their virtual infrastructures and increase the density of virtual machines (VM) per physical host. In many cases server administrators find that they’re not limited by CPU or memory but by storage performance. Enhancing server and desktop virtualization with SSD (solid state devices) can greatly improve virtualized performance and in many cases, may be better than the original stand alone configuration.
