Gartner Predicts 2007: Brace Yourself for the Next Wave of Server Technology

The rate of change in server technology creates new opportunities within data centers, but also new stress points. IT managers must be quick to spot new technologies, like virtualization and diskless-blade deployments to address emerging stress points and increase operational efficiency.

This Gartner analysis outlines the state of virtualization technologies today and details the new virtualization technologies of tomorrow. Mainstream virtualization technology will embrace I/O virtualization, breaking the traditional bonds between physical servers, network switches and storage area network (SAN) switches, and making shared OS virtualization ubiquitous.

This white paper will cover:

  • I/O virtualization
  • Shared OS virtualization
  • The affects these technologies will have in the data center
  • How to prepare for these changes
