Executive Summary

Server virtualization is one of the hottest trends in the IT industry today. Server virtualization has its roots in the IBM mainframe world of the 60s, had a rebirth in the late 90s, and finally came of age in 2007. Since that coming of age, the market penetration of server virtualization is staggering.
