Virtual servers to become more in-demand in 2010 - Data and Server Racks
According to a recent study carried out by Vmware, around three in four small businesses have found that virtualisation has helped reduce the time they are required to spend on routine IT administrative tasks, with many also benefitting from enhanced data protection and better business continuity preparedness.
As such, experts now believe that many more companies will look to outsource their server needs over the coming months, with this in turn likely to drive demand for large servers and top-end networking systems.
"Moving into 2010, we will see more companies looking towards hosted server virtualisation," explained Neil Barton, director of Hostway.
"Whilst in previous years this may have been cost prohibitive for some, as a number of servers can easily be employed across a virtual platform to guard against server or application failure, we expect to see that change dramatically throughout 2010."
