HP Makes a Heavy Virtualization Play

HP today launched a major virtualization push. On the product side, the push included new management software, virtualization enhancements to existing software, blade servers optimized for virtualization, and virtualization desktop options, including thin clients and blade PCs and workstations. See the details here.

A study accompanying the release highlights the business opportunity for partners. According to the HP-commissioned study, only one-third of survey respondents thought of virtualization as a business tool, suggesting a greenfield for partners who can successfully make the business case for virtualization. The summary of the survey is available here in a PDF.
