Intel says "Virtualize now!"

Well I said that too. Kirti Devi@Intel says:

Business advantage: Virtualization allows IT to deploy applications flexibly to meet demand. This ability to provision servers to meet business demands will enable IT to save time, costs and also act as a competitive advantage. Ultimately IT managers want to enable the business agility, provide differentiation and competitive advantage. An organization that can better manage costs, utilize resources, deploy newer services faster can gain a competitive advantage in today's market. Virtualization is one of the key technologies which will enable businesses to gain that advantage in the market.

I see keywords like Flexibility, On-Demand, Mobility. VMware has obviosuly championed the cause to evangelize this whole virtualization. And other software vendors are nowhere close to match their ability to pull off a cool suite of effective software out of their sleeves. No wonder VMware and Intel started their ASAP site.

I hope that potential outsourcing heroes (India, China, Africa) too see this an an opportunity to adopt this technology and get going!
