In 2013, we spoke to well over 300 different companies offering products or services in either the virtualization market, the cloud computing market or both. What can we expect to see in the coming year.
Next month, a free tool created by Infoblox could help IT departments get a better grasp of the growing complexity of their network.
Server, storage, network, desktop and application virtualization allows the creation of flexible, scalable, manageable and secure IT infrastructure that utilises the underlying hardware to maximum efficiency.

It is clear from this product launch that HP is one of a very small list of suppliers that fully understands and has the ability to address the use of all forms of virtualization technology.
Virtualization is a very useful tool. Unfortunately, many mistakenly equate virtual machine technology with virtualization itself. In reality, virtualization is a well-established group of technologies with a long track record of success. Using them together is where the real benefits may be found.
Why are virtualization suppliers acquiring suppliers of related, but different technology? They are trying to rebuild and impose a unified, proprietary stack.
In the eighth part of Robert Schifreen's SharePoint 2010 journey, he finds that reading between the lines is an essential part of understanding Microsoft's approach to specifications
In the seventh part of Robert Schifreen's SharePoint 2010 mission, he explains the practical, detailed decisions about configuration and resources, starting with virtualisation
The start-up's Network Virtualization Platform allows virtual networks to be created on top of any type of network hardware, with the promise of reducing vendor lock-in and providing more flexibility in administering security
In the beginning, Microsoft's system management suite, System Center, was all about managing network servers and other physical resources. Then along came virtualisation, so Virtual Machine Manager was added to handle virtual as well as physical systems.
Virtualisation has revolutionised the way organisations run server applications in the data centre. It allows organisations to migrate dozens of servers from a physical environment to a virtual private cloud to boost business continuity, for example, or to support disaster recovery, in the case of the emergency services.
