As mentioned yesterday in my blog post “101 Technology Trends and Predictions Lists for 2013”, I have been researching top trends and prediction lists as part of my research to understand the top technology trends.
Virtualization has been around for many years, but has just recently taken off. Virtualization helps drive more business value from an IT infrastructure. By decoupling logical resources from physical assets, virtualization enables businesses to be more agile, allowing them to changing business conditions or changing business strategies. Most large enterprises have already successfully virtualized 20-30% of their servers and are now ready to push virtualization technology further in 2013 into other areas, including storage, network, desktops, and applications.
Today I am playing back to you the trends and prediction lists I have found and inventoried relating to Virtualization technology. The list is certainly not all the Virtualization trend lists that are out there, but if you check out these posts, you should have a good feel for the state of adoption of virtualization technologies going into 2013.
Tomorrow I will provide the trends and prediction lists I’ve found relating to Cloud Computing.
