StackSafe interview: My take on Virtualization

Here's an excerpt of my interview from StackSafe:

We were able to catch up with Tarry Singh of Virtualization for Everyone and get his thoughts on enterprise IT today and where virtualization fits in. Tarry is a Dutch citizen and virtualization enthusiast who frequently shares his insights on the emerging trends that will affect the business community and global economy as a whole. At VMWorld 2008, he spoke with executives from Citrix and Microsoft on XenServer, XenDesktop (soon to be GA), XenApp and Hyper-V. Tarry’s expertise and passion for virtualization is exciting and we are happy to provide his views on IT’s About Uptime.

SS: What do you see as the biggest trend for enterprise IT today?

TS: Trends in data centers and virtualization cloud computing will be big by 2011. With cloud computing we will see data centers that will run like big yet efficient power plants. There will be several technologies, including virtualization, that may be deployed in those data centers. With most of the applications getting web enabled and bandwidths increasing, application delivery and software delivery will not only be efficient but also globally deliverable. That way we will truly achieve a 24×7 availability.
