Top reasons to go virtual: number one is cost savings, imagine one computer doing the job of three physical machines or more. Business is all about saving money while maintaining that edge that is beneficial to your company. Number two is enhanced disaster prevention and recovery. Virtual environments are easier to abstract then their physical counter parts making them easier to back up and restore. Lastly, if there is one single trend that is eclipsing virtualization, it is that of the cloud. With virtualization, migrating to the cloud becomes even easier. A lot of companies have transitioned to a private hosted cloud which provides all the same benefits of back up and mobility while still providing security.
