Galway 15 Jan 2008 – In keeping with their strategy of promoting and educating the market on the benefits of virtual appliances, SpamTitan, Irelands only "VMready" classified provider of virtual appliances today announced the release of a new whitepaper entitled "Virtualization and Virtual Appliances" The paper outlines the tremendous advantages of virtualisation and in particular the deployment of software based virtual appliances. The abstract is as follows:

In today’s world, everybody in looking for ways to save – to save money, to save time and to save energy – and "do more with less" has become a common mantra in modern businesses.

Virtualization is now firmly embedded in the enterprise mainstream. By moving away from the one-application-per-server deployment model, enterprises have been able to reap a broad set of benefits including cost reductions, improved availability and increased agility. However, many small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) continue to view virtualization as an enterprise-only technology that would not be viable in their smaller organizations – and that is a misconception.

This white paper explains how SMBs can leverage virtualization in order to make maximum use of their resources and maintain their competitive edge – and why they need to consider deploying virtualization sooner rather than later.
