Increasingly Sophisticated Virtualization
We asked IT professionals to tell us what technologies they were currently deploying that support
a current or planned cloud environment. Nearly three in four are currently using virtualization to
consolidate servers and enabling virtual machine (VM) mobility across multiple servers (73 percent) in
order to support a cloud. Nearly half offer automation and metering and chargeback based on usage and
enable business units to self-provision resources.
