IDC says virtualization services market will be $11.7B

July 11, 2007

IDC released a study today noting that the explosive growth of virtualization will mean that there is high demand for consulting and services specialized in optimizing the use of virtualization. Data center managers will struggle on their own to address the power, cooling and planning issues that are significantly impacted by the use of virtualization. The report predicts that the market for those services will grow from $5.5B in 2006 to $11.7B in 2011.

Dan Kusnetzky at ZDnet continues his discussion of how virtualization can be used to drive towards more energy-efficient data centers. He calls out the need for tools that actively consolidate and manage workloads:

Suppliers such as Cassatt, DataSynapse, Scalent, SteelEye, Surgient, VMware, XenSource and quite a few others offer this technology on industry standard, high volume clients, servers and blades. As with storage virtualization, the careful use of this software can help organizations reduce hardware, maintenance and administrative costs while also helping preserve the endangered kilowatt and preventing the release of the dreaded BTU, Calorie or Joule.
