Virtualization strategies
SearchCIO-MidMarket recently posted a virtualization quiz covering everything from licensing issues to server farm maintenence, but how up to speed do you think most organizations are in terms of server virtualization strategy? Have those that are going to embrace it already made the leap?

    We are very up to speed on virtualization. Almost all our Dev, QA and Production servers are running in a virtual enviroment.

    As opposed to Denny's case, we are only using virtualization in our dev/test environments, and I don't see our production servers being virtualized in the near future.

    We have a broad mix of dev, test, prod, and infrastructure VMs in our environment. Everything from content management, to DNS/DHCP, SMTP relay, FTP, SFTP, document OCR and post-processing... We've been virtualized, to some extent, for over 5 years. However, being one business unit in a larger, global organization, not everyone is as entrenched with virtualization as we are. At the upper echelons, there's a concern that virtualization isn't really production-ready, but those barriers are starting to fall.

    We are the opposite, we have gone down the virtual route, but now each dev and test environment to make it like for like as production we have more servers, silly. I need a server for dev and test and if needed a DR, so specked a Sun T2000 at 4k what have I now got, two T5220 at 27k, madness, don't let support people manage the virtual environments.
