The Rackspace hosted VMware environment will look and feel like an extension of the customerβs own data centre by leveraging the same vCenter APIs utilised by their existing tools. Specifically, customers maintain control and management capabilities through the use of dedicated vCenter Servers, vCenter APIs, compatible third-party tools, and their existing service catalogues, orchestration platforms and portals. Customers can utilise their familiar orchestration tools to conveniently provision virtual machines (VMs) in minutes, while providing visibility into costs and usage whether on- or off-premise through a single user interface.

In the VMware sponsored whitepaper, Vision 2020: Virtualizationβs Potential US$98 Billion Impact, IDC forecasts virtualization to save $2.99 billion in server spending, $2.15 billion in server admin costs, $0.84 billion in power and cooling and $0.04 billion in floor space by 2020.
The Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) also released a study that forecasts if most of the worldβs enterprises were to take up cloud computing for their large-scale IT operations, it could abate about 9.1 gigatonnes of CO2 and save US$1.9 trillion in gross energy and fuel costs by 2020 β about 16 per cent of the total Eurozone debt today.
