Richard Garsthagen. Technical Marketing Manager at VMware, published on his blog an interesting statistics about raise of requests for virtualization jobs.
Richard mention an average increase of demand up to 68%, counting North America countries but also UK, Netherlands, Belgium, France and Norway.
As far as I can see the most notable absent is Germany, one of the most active european countries for virtualization since the very beginning.
But apart this missing it’s true the interest for virtualization professional figures is rising. You can check from yourself looking at published job announcements in the brand new virtualization.info Job Board.
