Virtualization Nation

Let's try this again. Almost a year ago, we at RCPU launched a plea for you, the reader, to tell us your thoughts on virtualization -- what you're doing with it, what its potential is, what its weaknesses might be, whatever.

We got a few comments on the blog post itself -- which are always welcome and nice to see -- but, to our memory, the number of e-mails that rolled into your editor's inbox ended up being somewhere between zero and two. Of course, that was in 2007, eons ago, before RCP the magazine's sister publication, Virtualization Review, hit the stands for the first time.

So, now that you've had the chance to study up a bit, we're asking you again -- please send us your thoughts on virtualization. We're dedicating this whole issue of RCPU to the technology, mainly because it seems as though there's a lot of virtualization news this week. If you'll be so kind as to shoot us an e-mail or two, we'll run your thoughts some time next week. (See, there's always a cliffhanger -- that's what keeps you coming back, right?)

Anyway, enjoy this week's virtualization news, study up on VR and get back to us at, as always, lpender@rcpmag.com. In the meantime, check out one blogger's warnings about what virtualization can't do.
