Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

The Register has written a guide for you, a five-pager called Virtualization: solving the problems of success.

Inspired by a survey of 300 Reg-reading IT Pros, we produced this editorially independent study sponsored by Dell and Intel.

Headline findings are that some 92 per cent have already implemented virtualization to some extent within x86 server environments.

But in their rush to embrace the technology, many IT teams are also finding that virtual machines (or VMs), while far easier and cheaper to build, deploy, relocate and duplicate than their physical counterparts, come with a whole new set of management challenges.

Our guide is pitched at strategic level, mapping out a landscape of virtual sprawl, service levels, governance, risk and compliance.
