Virtualization and cloud services continue to gain momentum as more  and more organizations desire to reduce costs while improving  efficiency. According to Portnoy (2012), “Once the infrastructure  services are virtualized and an organization starts to reap some of the  fiscal benefits of their new strategy, an active program is put in place  to move to the next level. As servers come off their leases, those  workloads are migrated to the growing infrastructure. Companies usually  adopt virtualization-first policies, which state that as new projects  come in house, any server requirements will be satisfied by the virtual  resources, rather than by paying for new physical resources. Actual  hardware will be purchased only if it can be proven that the need cannot  be satisfied with the virtual environment.” (Understanding the  Importance of Virtualization).
