Thinking of Going to Itanium Servers?
Well, if you want to use virtualization, going to an Itanium processor may not be the wisest decision.  Could this be yet another negative for the Itanium solution?

Roger Howorth with IT Week reports:

Virtualisation tools are another problem for Itanium. Vendors such as Microsoft say Itanium is not suitable for mainstream business roles, so perhaps it is unsurprising that there are no Windows-based virtualisation tools for the platform. However, many firms are turning to virtualisation to speed up software rollouts, and improve disaster recovery and server utilisation, so the absence of this feature for Itanium will increasingly make the platform look like an IT backwater.
