Virtualization 202: Getting to the Next Level
The most significant evolution in information technology in a decade is occurring right now with x86 server virtualization. However, while there are many virtualization users today, the majority are relative neophytes. According to ESG research, two-thirds of organizations with virtual server implementations have less than three years of experience with the technology, and only 16% have had it deployed for more than five years. In addition, while some degree of server virtualization is becoming ubiquitous, slightly more than half of the organizations surveyed have virtualized less than one-third of their potential server targets.
