It is the last few days of the year and time for a review of virtualization 2010. Although VMware was founded in 1998 it was not until 2001 that I first heard of VMware and played with the Workstation product to be able to run different flavors of Linux. So for me, 2010 closes out a great year in virtualization as a whole as well as a decade of virtualization… and what a ride it has been!
Staying focused on 2010 we have had a few things that have been worthy to note. This year we have moved past defining what a “cloud” is and really starting to discuss how we are going to “secure the cloud.” The term “cloud computing” still leads the way as one of the biggest buzz word with most all people and companies now having heard of it are planning one way or another on deployment options into their own environments. One thing for sure is the need for fully qualified individuals to maintain and designs the clouds moving forward.
