Paper Overview

Many suppliers of virtualization technology tell IT executives that all of their problems can be solved through the use of their technology. What they don't often say is what they really mean is that everything will go well if the organization does the following things:

  •     Virtualizes everything using that supplier's virtualization technology,
  •     Manages it with that supplier's management tools,
  •     And doesn't have needs for features or functions that the supplier's products currently don't support.

Nearly all organizations deploying virtualization are working with hybrid environments. This paper examines what it means to have a virtualized environment, what are the current challenges that type of environment presents, where virtual machine software fits and what technology can be considered the most crucial component of an overall virtualization strategy.
