Ken Fogarty, writing for CIO, comments on a panel on virtualization at MIT last week that included Amazon CTO Werner Vogels and VMware founder Mendel Rosenblum.
“The good news is that virtualization will become a critical part of an even larger part of most IT infrastructures as time goes on.
“The bad news is that it will do so as part of a larger movement toward cloud computing and will, in large part, disappear as a separate discipline.”
This trend started a year ago and IMHO is new happening faster than most folks expected. Perhaps this explains why so many vendors seem to need to claim they are in the cloud computing space.
