Charlie Babcock over at InformationWeek has a good overview article on what's going on in virtualization these days. I got to spend some time with Charlie in mid-2006 when he was working on an article about Pfizer's use of virtualization -- which included Cassatt's software. Charlie's latest article gives a good perspective on the kinds of things people are starting to do. While I agree virtualization became mainstream in 2006, I think we're really still at the front-edge of the adoption curve for all of this. I think the trend will continue upwards in 2007, but it will accelerate even further in 2008. During 2007 you should expect to see people evaluating options and ideas that go beyond Windows consolidation with VMware -- which is where most of the action is today.
It's going to be an interesting year!
