Companies are looking to virtualization as an alternative to traditional on-premises data centers for two major reasons:
Physical data centers incur huge capital and operational expenses on companies and also have scalability and accessibility limitations.
On the other hand, virtualization has given companies a competitive edge in the market by reducing their IT expenses greatly while improving agility and efficiency. Moreover, the post-pandemic world has pulled more companies into virtualization, as it helps facilitate remote work.
VMware ESXi: A proven virtualization leader
When it comes to virtualization, VMware ESXi, the leading bare-metal hypervisor model, is considered the go-to solution for many companies around the world.
