Open standard Virtualization?



Pete Loshlin argues that the proprietary aspect of Virtualization which forces end users to use Servers/HW that are supported by top virtualization vendors like VMware, Microsoft, VirtualIron, to name a few, will eventually be washed away with Open Standards. I do too believe with open standards and eventually (I've been saying this about everything) a lot of things that we use to trade (meaning busy and sell) will be just free!

Anyways, this is what he says about the future


What does the future hold? Virtualization will gain importance, particularly as hardware vendors continue to rollout new products that support so-called "bare metal" virtualization, under which the hardware platforms perform some of the functions currently offered by virtualization software. Because it changes the way server and OS software is installed, Microsoft will continue to view virtualization as an important opportunity. Ultimately, they will either attempt to dominate the market by purchasing a company such as VMware; or if consumers are swayed to a more open standard such as that offered by Xen, Microsoft would, reluctantly, begin to support the standard.

Ultimately, the trend over time will be for businesses to move their business intelligence and other large and complex applications away from proprietary hardware and software that scales poorly, that demands significant staffing to maintain and that tends to lock businesses into specific vendors. Virtualization will permit businesses to treat their computing resources as fungible assets rather than as rapidly depreciating and underutilized cost centers.
