When outlining the potential financial savings from having virtualized network services modules, which statement would be a supportable statement to make?

  • A. Because the services are virtual, virtual network services modules will take up no rack space and will consume no power.
  • B. The savings will depend upon the requirements for each data center but can be as much as 80 percent on power and 30 units of rack space.
  • C. Virtual services modules can support up to a maximum of four virtual contexts, so they can save up to 75 percent of both power and rack space.
  • D. Every time a new virtual context is created, the services modules draw 50 percent more power than a single-context operation, so the maximum number of virtual contexts is limited to four per module. With the maximum of four virtual contexts, the total power consumed is 250 percent of a single context operation, which is 150 percent less power than four physical service appliances would draw.
