Once, virtualization centered on consolidation. It now centers on supporting data center modernization and is usually focused on improving reliability and performance. Those reliability and performance improvements in turn bring greater agility to the organizations’ business processes, which is the true hallmark of a modern software-defined data center.
Most organizations did not start their virtualization journeys by deploying Veeam software and Cisco UCS servers together. Typically, they adopted virtualization gradually and later decided to “get serious” about data center modernization. Getting serious about modernization required them to reassess their IT infrastructures, at which point they discovered that their old approaches were inadequate. Often, that discovery resulted in a decision to assess/use Veeam and Cisco UCS together.
