Consolidating applications on fewer servers enables businesses to run using less hardware. Oftentimes servers are under-utilized with a significant amount of processing power idling and unused. Running fewer servers saves money not only in up-front hardware costs but also by reducing energy bills and reducing the number of IT staff required for server management. Plus, processing power is used efficiently and more up to the capabilities each server can handle.
