Virtualization and Sustainability is topic that a bit offtopic from the technical points of Virtualization. But, the Corporate Sustainability is very relevant.
In 1987, on request of the UN there was a commission named Brundtlan. This Brundtland Commission set the stage for sustainable development or sustainability which can be is defined as “Meeting the needs of present generations without compromising the needs of future generations” it covers the fields of environment, economical and social.
What is the importance of Sustainability in Virtualization ?
Just like any business, Sustainable Business Development in Virtualization deployed environment is a direct application of Brundtlan report.
Sustainable Business Development is a strategy that can be applied in the fields where Virtualization is being used as medium and long term goal to survive over time.
Lot of business initiatives aimed at shaping the new style of Virtualization business, but one might wonder what different companies can can bring to the Sustainability in Virtualization?
Sustainability in Virtualization : A Deeper Thought
Environmental: Low CO2 footprint of the Virtualization deployed company, is improving the energy efficiency.
Social: Taking care of one server using Sustainability in Virtualization reduces the mental burden and stress than that of taking care of 10 servers. Indirectly, it influnces the social life in this way.
Economical: It has been written ago in this blog that, Virtualization definitely reduces the economical burden. The recurring costs for maintaining one server is far less than that of 10 servers.
There are many more points in favor of Sustainability in Virtualization, but I have tried to consolidate the whole scenario in to a brief and compact article.
No body wounder or get asthonised if another person says that a CFL lamp has far better Sustainability than an usual yellow light emitting bulb. In the same way, Virtualization will be such a synonymous words in future.
