    Virtualisation hotting up in 2009

    Virtualisation technology is going to become even more significant in 2009 with businesses increasingly realising its potential benefits.

    Analyst house Gartner predicts global revenue from virtualisation software will grow by 43 per cent this year, hitting $2.7bn, compared to $1.9bn in 2008.

    In addition the global penetration of virtualisation technology in businesses is forecast to hit 20 per cent by the end of the year - up from 12 per cent in 2008.

    I agree, I've already virtualised 3 of our servers (plus 1 test virtual server) and currently building another virtual server running sharepoint 2007 connecting to our MIS system. With a view to virtualising more of our servers this year (summer time)...
