What you are going to do in this project is pretend that you are the system administrator for an organization that is attempting to determine if virtualization of its server infrastructure would be beneficial to the organization.

Objective: To gain experience preparing an executive summary and to research howvirtualization may benefit an organization in terms of their server infrastructure.
Deliverables: On or before 11:59 pm (WebCourses time) Sunday September 4, 2022 submit thefollowing via WebCourses: An executive summary of your findings with respect to virtualizationof a server infrastructure, citing two sources that will substantiate your conclusions. Limit thelength of your executive summary to a maximum of 2 pages. (Note that executive summariesdo not normally contain cited references, but in this case I want you to include two referencesthat you cited in your summary.)
DescriptionWhat you are going to do in this project is pretend that you are the system administrator for anorganization that is attempting to determine if virtualization of its server infrastructure would bebeneficial to the organization. So you are examining the basic benefits and problems that arerelated to server virtualization.In this project you will do some very basic research that would provide a high-level overview ofhow server virtualization might benefit an organization.You will prepare an executive summary of your findings as the deliverable for this project.Normally, an executive summary summarizes a more complete accompanying report. You willnot be preparing this more complete report in this project, you will only be preparing theexecutive summary.Normally, executive summaries do not include references, but in this case, I want you to cite tworeferences that you used to substantiate the claims that you make in the executive summary.If you have never prepared an executive summary before, the following links might be useful:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_summaryhttp://hbswk.hbs.edu/archive/3660.htmlhttp://writing.colostate.edu/guides/documents/execsum/Note that an executive summary is different from an abstract.Abstracts tend to be most common in academic environments whereas executive summaries areprimarily confined to business environments.
An abstract is a brief summarizing statement which is read by people who are trying to decidewhether or not to read the entire document.An executive summary is the document in miniature which can be read in place of the longerdocument. CEOs and COOs are too busy to read your entire hundreds of pages reports, so theexecutive summary is intended to summarize your full reports findings and providedrecommendations to the CEO or COO.Confine your research to the area of server virtualization. We are not interested at this point innetwork or storage virtualization issues.
Consider the following issues in your report:
Server consolidation ratios – what is a realistic number that the organization might expectto see. What are the variables here?
Define at least three potential benefits that the organization might achieve throughserver virtualization.
Define at least two potential disadvantages that the organization needs to be aware ofand their potential consequences if ignored.
