Server virtualization ain't all that...
Immature headline for immature technology?
Mini Poll If you listen to a lot of the vendors, server virtualisation is now pretty mainstream, and the impression you get is that it’s just a case of getting on with it - if you haven’t done so already. But how realistic is this?
This is unlikely that the technology is that mature when you consider that less than 10 per cent of the world’s servers are virtualised, according to the usual number crunchers. Whether or not this is strictly accurate, it’s probably that while some organisations have gone to town virtualising everything in sight, many others have yet to move in this direction or are still at the start of their virtualisation journey.
