Virtualization Resources: IBM Websites, Social Sites, and White Papers

Virtualization is not a new trend (it’s been around in concept since the 1960’s), but it’s an important trend because it is a key enabling technology to implement cloud computing

VirtualizationVirtualization can be simply defined as the consolidation of numerous IT systems (hardware and software elements) on a virtual platform.  Virtualization can help IT leaders increase utilization rates while simplifying management of IT resources.   For business leaders, virtualization can improve business agility by better meeting shifting business demands on IT.   Ultimately, virtualization can save a company time, resources and money.   In a nutshell, it makes your IT infrastructure more agile and nimble to meet constantly changing business demand.  Who wouldn’t want that?

Because virtualization remains an important enabling technology trend, I thought I’d provide readers of this some links to IBM’s most current reports, websites, and social accounts related to the virtualization trend.  For me, it’s nice to have all this in one place.   The reports and sites below are all hotlinked.  If you see something that is missing, let me know and I will revise this post.
