Server virtualisation: Myths (Gartner 12/2008) Myth 1: Server virtualization is widespread among enterprises Truth: Only 15% of all workloads are running on virtual machines toda - By 2012 it will rise up to 50% Myth 2: Users want to save money by virtualization Truth: The original reason to virtualize i mainly to reduce costs, but is statistics show, that after a while IT flexibilty becomes priority number Myth 3: The market will soon head into a deadend street Truth: The market is large enough – Server virtualization, infrastructure management and – automation up to Cloud Computing.
