Microsoft has Citrix as a huge virtualization partner, and now VMware has Cisco and parent company EMC to fight back.
The three have formed an alliance to sell blocks of virtual capacity to IT. Cisco can not only handle the networking, but has a new server line built for virtualization and unified communication.
