  • HorizonWatching CommunityVirtualization Trend Overview Video: IBM Advanced Virtualization Virtualization helps drive more business value from an IT infrastructure. By decoupling logical resources from physical assets, virtualization enables businesses to be more agile, allowing them to changing business conditions or changing business strategies. “Virtualization is the practice of creating a virtual version of a device, machine, or resource, and then operating the virtual machine on a physical host machine. Often, multiple virtual machines are created and operate simultaneously on a single piece of hardware, allowing for more efficient utilization of resources.” – ABI Research (link)“Virtualization enhances flexibility and agility by detaching workloads and data from thefunctional side of physical infrastructure. Possibilities abound for networks, storage, serversand desktops, but virtualization also involves substantial upfront investment.” – Gartner (link)“Virtualization makes it easier to dynamically and granularly pool and reallocate infrastructureresources (servers, desktop, storage, networking, middleware, etc.).” – Gartner (link)3 January 17, 2013 Virtualization: A 2013 HorizonWatching Trend Report © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License
  • HorizonWatching CommunityTop Virtualization Trends in 20131. Server and Storage Virtualization: SMB Market catches the wave, but needs services and solutions to be tailored to them.2. More Than Just Servers & Storage: Large Enterprise focus turns rest of infrastructure, including Desktop, Networks, and Data Center3. Desktop Virtualization: Growth continues with focus on network security & efficiency, driven by the mobile and BYOD trend4. Software Defined Networking (SDN): Expect lots of activity as SDN demand continues to grow and product innovation occurs5. Virtualizing Linux Workloads: Linux server virtualization grows and plays “catch up” to Windows6. Containerization: Interest increases in O/S Virtualization7. Mergers & Acquisitions: Activity grows and valuations increase8. Vendor Competition Heats Up: VMWare is King – but competitors are becoming more attractive – Lower prices: More competition means lower prices – Innovation: More compeition means more innovation – Multiple Vendor Strategy: Growing number of firms try this approach4 January 17, 2013 Virtualization: A 2013 HorizonWatching Trend Report © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License

The market itself is beginning to consolidate as larger vendors acquire unique smaller firms to access new capabilities and customer groups.” – IDC (link) 7 January 17, 2013 Virtualization: A 2013 HorizonWatching Trend Report © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License
  • HorizonWatching CommunityIn 2013, the interest in desktop virtualization will continue Desktop Virtualization Growth Webinar on Desktop Virtualization “Gartner estimates that by 2015, virtualized physical servers deployed for HVD workloads will reach about 368,000 units and will account for 16.7 percent of virtualized physical servers for all workloads. HVD workloads are among the fastest-growing server workloads” – Gartner (link) “The virtual client computing market is going to grow from $2.4 billion in 2011 to $3.5 billion in 2016, but up-front costs and complexity will drive organizations to look for an outsourced delivery model, driving the hosted market to $661.1 million by 2016.” – IDC (link) “IDC believes this market is poised for an explosion over the next few years, driven in part by consumerization of IT and the continued explosion of the mobile device market.” – IDC (link) 8 January 17, 2013 Virtualization: A 2013 HorizonWatching Trend Report © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License
