Virtualization helps businesses to simplify and consolidate their IT infrastructures. It also helps lower operational and energy costs as well as increase flexibility and agility. Businesses are increasingly adopting virtualization in their server farms, storage and networks to gain the benefits of simplification, consolidation and flexibility, which are the hallmarks of virtualization technologies. Although many of these organizations believe they’ve taken the virtualization road about as far as it can go in their data centers, they might not have tapped
into a critical aspect of virtualization technology.

This white paper examines a new virtualization category in the data center called application infrastructure virtualization and how it can augment and enhance the value of server virtualization. This paper also describes IBM WebSphere® Virtual Enterprise, a product designed to virtualize enterprise applications and services across the IT infrastructure.
