Virtualization getting everywhere!

Citrix gets Ardence pushing virtualization on application level into the year 2007 even harder than ever. Next 2 years are not only going to bring radical and fundamental changes but many conventional technologies are going to disappear into the oblivion.

What would VMware do to take the chunk of the "application virtualization" market share out of Citrix of Softricity's hands? I'll tell you in one of my weekend strategy sessions on "VMWare's diversification and penetration into the newer (previously considered dark and scary) markets/arenas!". Part of our HyperDisruptive MarketBusting Strategies for 2007/2008 series.

And this I call a "saying yay while my lips say nay"

Cristinziano downplays any idea of Citrix, with a market capitalization of $5 billion, itself becoming an acquisition target as technology titans Microsoft Corp. and IBM Corp. move into virtualization.

And how could we forget Oracle? I'm sure Oracle too would want to go for it or other Virtualization vendors, XenSource maybe?
