AberdeenGroup research shows that 31 percent of organizations surveyed have virtualization deployed within their IT infrastructure. The same research also shows that virtualization has strong adoption rate, largely due to companies’ need to cut costs through server consolidation and resource flexibility. About fifty percent of companies surveyed either have deployed or plan to evaluate some virtualization solutions. However, it was only a matter of time before a red flag was raised about how these new logical environments are going to be secured for high availability, disaster recovery and business continuity. Bottom line, end users need to start thinking not only about using virtualization for high availability and disaster recovery but also, about how to protect their newly virtualized environments.
If you are a CIO, Infrastructure Manager, IT Manager or even a concerned CEO, I would strongly advice you to read this whitepaper.
