Virtualization in a Tera-Scale Environment
With increased computing capacity and scalability, Tera-scale systems of the near future will enable much greater functionality in virtual environments. This foundation will make it possible for new, scalable applications and virtual appliances to enter the market. And yet, with this evolution of new virtualized systems, the requirements of legacy applications that businesses continue to depend on won't need to be sacrificed. A considerable benefit to the developer, virtualization reduces the challenges companies will face as a result of fewer environments the software must be tested and validated against. These factors - scalability, virtualization, and fewer platform challenges - will create a new, rich development environment around Tera-scale virtualized systems.
