What about awareness on Virtualization?

Awareness has reached 92%, WHIR blogs found out.

And which virtualization vendors are these companies familiar with? VMWare (53%). I was surprised that only one respondent mentioned Xen, but the upcoming Xen-integrated RHEL5 might change that. 6 mentioned Solaris Containers, which Joyent offers. SWSoft's Virtuozzo was notably absent from the list; I think its focus on web hosting providers as a distribution channel might be at least partially to blame.

I'm pretty sure VMware will be more that content to get 50-60% of the market , if they continue to maintain the lead. so by 2010 they might be a $10 to $12 Billion company. Not bad! But if I were at VMware I'd go for full blast and a 100% run! (I'm sure that's what they're gonna go for!)

OK but be well aware of the dangers and Check out the WHIR.
