3 Through 2012, virtualization will be the highest-impact trend in infrastructure and operation. Thomas Bittman, Gartner Data Center Conference: “Server Virtualization: Trends, Best Practices, and the Future” November 2007 DELL CONFIDENTIAL 333

4 DRIVING FULL VALUE REQUIRES COMPREHENSIVE INFRASTRUCTURE STRATEGY MANAGEMENTKNOWLEDGEINFRASTRUCTURE Which Servers are best for Virtualization? What about storage… do we need a SAN? How much capacity? How does this impact my network? Which applications should be virtualized? Which should stay physical? What’s the ROI? Who owns the assets? How do we effectively manage virtual infrastructure? How do we control virtual machine “sprawl”? What’s the best practice for backup? COMPLEXITY IS GROWING Virtualization isn't just about raising the use level of x86 servers. Virtualization will have major operational, cultural and business process implications, and users must prepare now to get the best return on investment (ROI). - Gartner Data Center Conference: Day 3 Highlights 'Virtualization‘, Nov. 2007
