The Future of Virtualization

Predicting the future is always difficult. A less difficult exercise, however, is to examine trends and see where they are going. From this perspective, we can follow the massive acceptance of virtualization technologies and the virtualization vendors’ race to get their share of the market. Virtualization is still a young technology, but it is growing at a very fast pace.

One thing is certain: The technology will continue to evolve, driven by business needs and competition. The following sections contain a list of predictions for the future of virtualization, in no particular order or priority of importance.
