Virtualization, to many people, is a very hot topic when it comes to many people working in Technology. Many people see it as some new fancy thing that has been around for a few years, but it has been around for a LONG time. It is truely astounding how many people still have no idea what virtualization is, let alone having any plans to deploy it in their infrastructure.
VMware have ruled the market in this area for over the past 10-15 years, however they have a serious competitor. Whilst VMware stay put over in the blue corner, not really offering much more than in recent years other than charging their customers through the nose for their solution, over in the red corner, is Red Hat offering a solution that not only significantly outperforms VMware’s products with obscene statistics, but the TCO is also obscenely cheaper than what VMware can offer.
