Thank you for supporting vSphere adoption in your roundabout way.
Much love, VMware
…not your typical mud-slinging blog, is it? 😉
Actually, my quippy love letter was inspired by an article we just published over at SearchVMware.com by Steve Kaplan.
In it, Kaplan basically argues that while smaller companies will take the bait and try Hyper-V because of cost Windows Server 2008 prevalence, when they inevitably sit down and plan for a virtualization adoption beyond test and dev, they will likely consider the virtualization roadmap… a.k.a. IT as a service, which translates to setting up a virtual environment that can support an internal cloud…which means, spending the money to bring in VMware vSphere.
