73% Say Virtualization Cuts Downtime

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. -- Vizioncore Inc., the market leader in virtual server management, announced that the ability of organizations to recover from failure is much quicker using virtualization according to an end-user survey conducted at the VMworld Europe conference in February 2008. Of the more than 200 responses, 76 percent of those surveyed stated that they could recover a virtual machine within two hours, while 73 percent stated that virtualization had helped them to reduce application downtime. However, just over a third of all organizations that have implemented virtualization do not have a specific disaster recovery strategy in place to protect their environments.

The role of virtualization within businesses has gone well beyond just server consolidation,” said Chris Akerberg, President and Chief Operating Officer of Vizioncore. “The results of this survey show that improved business continuity and accelerated disaster recovery are now significant drivers for uptake of virtualization. The fact that many organizations still lack a proper disaster recovery strategy for their virtual infrastructures highlights the significant opportunity that exists in this area and is why we feel we are increasingly well positioned to help them protect their mission-critical applications running on virtual machines. This is just part of why we see management tools playing a huge role in helping customers become even more comfortable with virtualization and making the potential benefits of the technology a reality for organizations of all sizes.”
