    VM.W=Future. The Smart will read on...

    Much has been noted about the IT market, but this is not the only market where virtualization plays well. And while not saturated (or saturated as some posters have stated). There are other markets.

    Development organizations for one are large market for virtualization. These are the companies or departments who develop sofware or applications as a product / service. They (we, I'm in development) rely on virtualization to improve our development costs and reduce development time.

    We use virtualization for the development and testing of software in environments with minimal hardware or setup costs. We create and test on virtual networks. Our clients and servers can quickly be configured, and reconfigured, and/or saved and restored to known states.

    Entire environments are saved and replicated so other can see and use "our" environment, reducing or eliminating comments such as "well it worked on my system" or "unless you can replicate it, we won't fix it."

    We've also decentralized the development environment by using virtualization. This allows developers to access their development environment from any location and be 100 % productive. Other tools, like remote desktop or VNC are far too limiting.

    So my money is on VMW. While their competition is trying to virtualize an environment, VMW is beyond that and virtualizaing the way I work.
