Data Center 100: Top 20 Virtualization Vendors
There was a time when server and desktop virtualization were the only game in town, but those days are long gone. Now, the industry's attentions have shifted to areas like data virtualization, which solves tough storage related challenges; and network virtualization, which pools routers and switch hardware and lets it be managed by software.
There's also hyper-convergence, the moniker for software that combines compute, storage and networking functions and lets it run on industry standard x86 server hardware.
Many organizations are using virtualization to cut costs and make their infrastructure more easily managed, and it's clear there's still plenty of innovation going on in this space.
