time is running out

Is it the right time to virtualize?

Picture the scene. You’ve run your legacy infrastructure into the ground. You bought it six or seven years ago with a view to depreciating the hardware over four years, or perhaps even three, so it’s done its time and then some. Now it’s starting to get flakier than you can live with, and as your channel partner’s spares supply is now drying up you’re finding yourself searching eBay rather more than you used to. It’s time to renew the kit, and as you look around you see your peers, the vendors and people like me talking about how great virtualization is. But is it really time for you to virtualize?
