I normally keep this blog separate from my work at Fujitsu; however I’ve recently been involved in the production of an article about virtualisation and now that it’s been published, I’d like to highlight its existence on the Fujitsu UK website:
Make sure that virtualisation pays – and keeps on paying
Once a niche technology for test and development environments, virtualisation has moved into the mainstream as organisations embrace the benefits in efficiency and flexibility that it offers. It’s our opinion that virtualisation in itself is neither a quick fix for complex IT environments nor a guaranteed source of bottom-line benefits. It all depends on how you manage the technology – and how you adapt the processes and culture of your organisation to new ways of working.
Of course, although I’m attributed as the author, there were a team of people involved in the production of this document and I’d be interested to hear other people’s views – either by leaving a comment here, or (preferably), by leaving a comment on the Fujitsu website.
