The latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure includes Microsoft in the leader quadrant, albeit well west and south of VMware which moved still further to the upper right, but analysts again are speculating that VMware’s dominance may be vulnerable.
The initial success of SET indicates it is likely to become a popular tool for VMware’s channel. The framework widens the competitive advantage when pitching a virtualization solution against Microsoft’s Hyper-V. It is the IP bundling component, though, that provides the most interesting opportunity. Partners that are able to capitalize on this aspect will be able to differentiate themselves with branded offerings.
Lack of an ROI analysis makes it less likely that organizations will adopt a strategic approach to virtualizing their data centers. Mixed environments of both physical and virtual machines instead continue to perpetuate the difficulties of a physical infrastructure while also incorporating new complexities of a virtual environment – straining the limited financial and staffing resources available.
