Guide to Data Center Virtualization describes a process for data center migration to virtualization.
This guide discusses a process - or lifecycle methodology - to manage data center virtualization. "The methodology incorporates the elements of virtualization, orchestration, and consolidation. Companies can achieve this by identifying, planning, and analyzing assets; and then managing and monitoring the enterprise. After these elements are met, businesses can claim true data center virtualization—that is, the implementation of service-based policy management—rather than server-based, IT-intensive processes and architecture."
