Top 10 Virtualization Companies - 2018

Over the years virtualization has become mainstream in modern data centers as it enables organizations to increase IT agility, consolidate workloads, make IT environments scalable and more flexible. “Do more with less” is the new adage creating a positive impact in the virtualization landscape. To achieve this feat, organizations are increasingly adopting hyper-converged infrastructure that lets administrators manage pools of compute resources, disk assignments for virtual machines, and network underlay configuration all under a single unified management interface. As more enterprises continue moving their resources to cloud and begin using virtual environments, hyper-scale data centers are increasingly becoming the powerhouse to host raw computational data and information. Automation is another trend that is picking up steam as a next evolution of virtualization. Other major technologies such as open source software, network functions virtualization (NFV), AR and VR, and adaptive security architecture are contributing toward shaping the future of the industry.

The future of virtualization technology looks bright, as enterprise IT management will be completely based on virtual computing and virtualization. It allows organizations to maximize computer utilization while minimizing all associated overheads of management, power consumption, maintenance as well as physical space. Furthermore, organizations are also opting for virtualization partners who are capable of providing off-the-shelf corporate cybersecurity.
