Virtualization: Evolution Not Revolution

Many in the industry are speaking about virtual machine software and virtualized environments as if it is a revolution. Since much of the technology has been seen in mainframes and midrange systems for almost three decades, this is not likely to be true. The infrastructure of most organizations is a chronological layer cake of technologies making revolutionary changes problematic. Virtualization, when added to the mix, can be either a wonderful thing or something that will magnify current issues. Most organizations follow the "Golden Rules of IT" when adopting new technology.
