Virtualization, VMware 5.0, IT Trends 2012

Of the top ten key IT trends for 2012, Network World ranks Virtualization as number one. 

At the Gartner Symposium IT/Expo, David Cappuccio, managing vice president and chief of research for the Infrastructure teams with Gartner, said the Top 10 Trends show how IT is changing in that many of them in the past been outside the traditional purview of IT, but they will all affect how IT does its job in the future.

The evolution of virtualization: Cappuccio says virtualization will ultimately drive more companies to treat IT like a business. The danger during the next few years will be in following a specific vendor’s vision, though it is unlikely that any one vendor’s vision will prevail. Users should have their own visions of architecture control, and build toward it with a constantly updated strategic plan.

The good news is that here at Babsim we recognize this, and we have just what you need to get your virtualization skills up to par.  On November 7th, we will have our brand new VMw-1300: VMware vSphere 5.0 with ESXi and vCenter course.
