VMware: Too popular to be complex?

Yep. They are the heroes today. Really basking in the limelight and they ought to, dogammit! They rebuilt the way you are thinking today, aren't you? Even when ou are defying everything about it, you are thinking about it. Even when you don't want to think about it, you just can't push it away.
Face it, its looking into your face, whether you're looking or not!

Businesses love this since VMware allows them to realize immediate cost savings. It eliminates the requirement to buy new hardware every time a company needs a new application, which shortens project implementation life cycles. It also means fewer servers on data center floors, which reduce cabling, power and floor space requirements.

Where businesses need to exercise caution in this new virtual environment is the complexity that virtualization introduces. Though businesses can virtualize servers and, in so doing, reduce their infrastructure costs, complexity takes on a virtual component as well.

For instance, backups become much more complex. Prior to VMware, each physical server often had its own dedicated network connection it could use for backups. Now each virtual server must share the same physical network connection with other virtual servers on the VMware host.
