SaaS, Virtualization to be pervasive by 2009

Virtualisation is just as popular, the survey suggested. Nearly all - some 94 per cent - of UK businesses said they expected to increase their investment in virtualisation by 2009. While 68 per cent of UK businesses use virtualisation in their servers and data centres, storage virtualisation is used by 56 per cent of respondents and application virtualisation is used by 40 per cent.

"There's a high propensity of server virtualisation in the market today, with type one hypervisors, like those from VMware," said Geoff Gilton, head of managed services products at COLT. "We believe the next wave is to leverage application virtualisation."

Indeed, moving virtualisation to that level could be key to applying service level agreements (SLA) to applications. "We believe it is critical to SaaS model," he said. "This validated our assumptions, to see people adopting virtualisation."
