Microsoft Announces Vision and Strategy to Accelerate Virtualization Adoption

2008/2/1By Harry Yang, China IP,[Comprehensive Reports]

On Jan. 22, 2008, Microsoft Corp. articulated an expanded role for virtualization as a key enabler of its Dynamic IT vision and outlined a companywide strategy to help accelerate the broad adoption of virtualization. Specific to its strategy, the company also announced the acquisition of Calista Technologies Inc. to improve the end-user experience for virtualized desktops and applications; an expanded alliance with Citrix Systems Inc. in the areas of client and server virtualization; more flexible licensing options for virtualization using Windows Vista; and new tools that provide best practices to deploy Microsoft virtualization software.

"Very few customers are able to reap the benefits of virtualization today," said Bob Muglia, Senior Vice President of the Server and Tools Business at Microsoft. "We estimate that less than five percent of companies are utilizing virtualization technology because it is simply too cost-prohibitive and complex. We believe Microsoft's comprehensive approach — from desktop to datacenter — is unique to the industry by delivering solutions that address virtualization at the hardware, application and management levels. Our approach is not only one of the most comprehensive in the market today, but we believe it is also one of the most economic. This combination brings a big strategic advantage and cost savings to customers."
