It’s the end of the year and a bottom line is due: virtualization is spreading at huge rate.
I like to think virtualization.info is a sort of “virtualization meter” since someone interested in this technology will probably arrive here sooner or later.
If this is true virtualization.info statistics can help me explaining what I mean with “huge rate”.
This blog is online since just a couple of years and it uses not too flexible statistical engine (even if StatCounter worked great since ever and it’s free) so I cannot go that further with analysis.
This first graph shows how people interest grew more and more in the last months:
Gartner on December 2003 said: 2004 is the year of virtualization.
I feel they missed the forecast by 3 years: the virtualization mass-spreading will start on 2007.
So be sure to use your whole 2006 to stay ready.
