Veering into Virtualization

Phoebe Magdirila | May 15, 2012
With the increasing challenges of maintaining numerous servers, coupled with the high cost of keeping a robust data center, small and medium businesses are now seeking alternative solutions to keep their IT systems and infrastructure less costly while still being efficient, and at a healthy pace against competition.

Microsoft's Garcia adds that he sees more of the local enterprises jumping into this technological advancement are soon to carry the proper know-how. "Part of it is education," he affirms. "A lot of market analysts--at least for the hardware market--are now seeing a pick-up on a single CPU servers being virtualized," shares Microsoft's Garcia. "And that's what SMBs will probably look at."

Agreeing to the expected growth of virtualization, The Rosetta Group's Martin, believes that "fairly soon, everyone will know how to virtualize machines and this will become common knowledge." Phelps Dodge's Garcia shakes on side with this, as he predicts the direction of IT. "Yes, everybody will go to the virtualization and the cloud."
