Has Virtualization Been Your Top Priority This Year?

At the beginning of this year, the research firm of IDC released the results of a survey in which CIOs of major corporation were asked to name their top three IT priorities for 2012. So what stood atop that list? Virtualization of course. When asked to pick their top three IT priorities, almost 40 percent of the survey respondents picked virtualization and sever consolidation – which was more than any other area of IT. This was great news for the IT specialists and engineers of those companies. Virtualization would allow them to streamline their network’s flexibility, availability and efficiencies, all while reducing major IT expenses.

How do your IT investments stack up?
