Virtualization more powerful than ever?




But now that virtualization is becoming commonplace, it turns out that there are a range of ancillary benefits that can dramatically lower costs, boost capabilities and simplify operations throughout the enterprise. From virtual SANs to virtual PCs and right down to such esoteric matters as disaster recovery and business continuity, it turns out that the virtual environments being installed now have the potential to continue paying dividends well into the future.

Let’s take a look at storage. There’s a lot of activity surrounding storage provisioning and file clustering. The same ideas, it seems, that made virtualization so attractive to the server farm can have equal benefits on the storage side. 3Par is one of the firms leading this charge, adding provisioning capabilities to its InForm operating system that drives the InServe and InSpire systems.


Indeed the time has come to see and fave virtualization as the reality. A reality that has been happening for a long time. All the shops who have "effectively" evaded that virtualization train must face the sole fact. It is the only train to the next IT. You don't have to work at Gartner or Forrester to figure it out. Figure out things like: IT managers should have always been "only" IT managers, CIOs should always be IT familiar folks, IT people ought to see more of the business side of IT etc etc.

Virtualization is helping organization showcase massive savings and show us all a much better way to think and work.
