ABSTRACT:

What should the channel be selling?

Virtualisation can offer resellers a range of technologies to pitch. As Amro Gebreel finds out these are not just confined to virtual tools but beyond as a move to the technology has implications on existing legacy systems. The opportunities as a result for resellers are wide and the selling options more numerous than they might have imagined.

 

Going beyond the server

Desktop virtualisation and management tools have become two of the broad product categories to emerge in the last year as areas resellers should be engaging in. As Billy MacInnes finds out there is plenty of activity currently happening in these areas and more forecast by vendors.
