Virtualization with VMware

Button Graphic: Click for Purchase VMware - blue and green border

Through the University System of Ohio virtualization program, you can purchase VMware software licenses and support at significantly reduced prices.

In the first 18 months of operation, the total VMware savings equaled $44.9 million. By the end of 2012, the total savings are projected to tally $100 million.


Virtualization allows IT departments to create a virtual environment at the workstation, server or data center level. With this virtualization technology, you can reduce the number of physical servers or computers, while still maintaining performance levels. Benefits include:

  • Reduced costs for physical IT hardware (servers, desktops, etc.)
  • Lower operational and maintenance costs, when upgrading your IT environment.
  • "Green" IT Savings through lower power, cooling and space costs.
  • American Electric Power, Dayton Light and Power and Duke Power offer financial incentives for virtualized datacenters because they consume less energy.
