- Improved Resource Utilization
Virtualization technology is used to deliver the many of the benefits of cloud computing. Most Virtualization is able to provide private cloud users with improved resource utilization by deploying workloads to different physical servers according to the change in resources. With that said, resources that are dedicated to a particular server can also be tweaked to satisfy the changing demands of any specific application.
- Reduced Costs
Due to the flexibility and improved resource utilization, not only this allows organizations to ensure application performance, but also reduce costs by fully utilizing their servers. Besides saving money over a traditional on-premise environment, it costs less than a public cloud environment for some organizations.
- Increased Flexibility
Organizations that are migrating from a traditional on-premise system usually prefer to deploy their workloads to the private cloud, as it can be customized to support any application.
