Virtualization Platforms

Among the leading business challenges confronting CIOs and IT managers today are: cost-effective utilization of IT infrastructure; responsiveness in supporting new business initiatives; and flexibility in adapting to organizational changes. Driving an additional sense of urgency is the continued climate of IT budget constraints and more stringent regulatory requirements. Virtualization is a fundamental technological innovation that allows skilled IT managers to deploy creative solutions to such business challenges.

Virtual Infrastructure Defined

Currently there are a number of leading Virtualization vendors supplying products to the main enterprise market.  One of the first to marker was VMware, whose ESX and GSX server products revolutionized the industry.  More recently, Microsoft through its acquisition of Connectix has successfully marketed and deployed Virtual PC (for the desktop) and Virtual Server 2005 R2 for the Enterprise Class market.
