Virtualization fits in SMB world



I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the play in the Enterprise market has been long materialized. SMB market has always been a hard nut to crack. You know it needs it, but still can justify why. You know there is a lot of money in it, but can't really show a figure to the investor. You know it is a very interesting and growing market but how to penetrate it?

Virtualization , as we see, found that hole and in penetrating pretty successfully in the SMB market.

Today, virtual operating systems allow companies of all size to take advantage of hardware that would have made yesterday's IT managers salivate in envy. Multicore processors, inexpensive system memory and commodity-priced massive disk drives are putting the disk farms and mainframes of years ago into a small chassis. The result: technology that once was the province of multinational companies can now be used by small- and mid-sized businesses as well--assuming they have the technological wherewithal to implement these capabilities.
