It is the start of VMworld and my during my first days of meetings and briefings I have met up with a few companies like QualiSystems, Rackware, and Intiqua that are focusing on automation. These meetings have further confirmed my thoughts from my previous post that automation has now made it mainstream and will continue to grow from here. I expect more and more third-party offerings that will automate more day-to-day tasks and so much more. This supports my belief that in the large enterprises the lower level support groups are going to be an endangered species that will be replaced by automation, which will put a greater demand on the high-end engineers and/or automation developers. This thought leads me to believe that the future of virtualization support groups will be split between two teams. One will consist of virtual architecture and virtual implementation; the other will be a support group of automation engineers to maintain and build the automation workflows.
