Virtualization: compare and contrast

September 28, 2010 — A recent Forester Research survey shows 50 percent of IT professionals plan on implementing or expanding virtualization.

Leading reasons are server consolidation, quickly provisioning new applications, and using virtualization for backups.

This is a major concern for federal as well as commercial technology leaders.

Who has a better virtualization platform: VMware or Microsoft? Where does Citrix fit in this debate? What about security?

Joe Brown is the president of Accelera Solutions, which provides support for all the leading virtualization platforms.

He joins host John Gilroy with an overview of virtualization as a concept as well as highlighting strengths of differing systems.

If you have questions on live migration, fault tolerance, or other concerns, be sure to listen to the show.
