Virtualization has been sold for the host of benefits it offers, things like reduced capital expenditures, consolidation and speed of deployment. But it’s not until you actually deploy a virtualized environment that you realize some of the other wonders it can bring to your operation. On the show floor at VMworld 2012, I asked attendees — all of whom had virtualized — some of the unforeseen gains they’d seen by virtualizing.

  1. I had to comment on the last person interviewed – caught me off guard – made my day.

    One thing to add – everybody interviewed was enterprise IT – for embedded systems being able to virtualize a DOS or OS/2 box for software mods or checkout is absolutely awesome.

    Congratulations!! Very well done commentary.
