Virtualization Real-Time Analyst Prediction Series

I've begun writing a series on Virtualization predictions and suddenly I realized that this will go on for the whole year!

Why am I writing it on CEB (NYSE::EXBD) blog at ITtoolbox and not on my blog?

Answer is simple. Obviously I want you to come to my blog but I want you to come to where the community is. I am NOT the community, I am a mere mortal and maybe a one-man firehose from this end. So while I am shooting myself in the leg by talking about it within the community and not on my "Legacy Blogging Style". Anyways back to the community. I will be covering:

  1. Server virtualization trends
  2. Vendor strategies and evolving eco-system
  3. Solutions provider's evolution strategy (For instance what should our solution suite should look like: Virtualization top down, bottoms-up complemented with security, VMLM, ITSM, DRP, etc all baked-in). Here they should also develop these models with Virtualization vendors.
  4. Customer-friendly solution that develop models for developing "entry and exit" strategy. Note: Here with the maturity and adoption of other hypervisors gets pervasive, customers must go virtual.
More will come here, keep watching this space.
