Yesterday at the Data Center Conference 2008 in Las Vegas, Thomas Bittman, Vice President of Data Center Research at Gartner, announced three remarkable predictions about the virtualization industry:
- By 2012, at least 14% of the infrastructure and operations architecture of Fortune 1000 companies will be managed and delivered much like a cloud-computing provider, internally
- The installed base of VMs will grow more than tenfold between 2007 and 2011
- By 2012, the majority of x86 server workloads will be running in a VM
