Microsoft: Virtualization customers in Asia Pacific to double

Quoting from ZDNet:

Microsoft expects the number of its customers in the region deploying its server virtualization technology to double by next year. And it is aiming to do this by offering Virtual Server 2005 R2 as a no-charge download.

Chris Sharp, general manager at Microsoft Asia's servers and tools division, told ZDNet Asia that about 10 percent of its large customers--companies with more than 500 employees--already deploy virtualization. "With the changes in [Virtual Server's] pricing and licensing, Microsoft expects that number in the Asia-Pacific to double within the next fiscal year," he said.

Microsoft's Sharp expects many of the company's customers to deploy server virtualization for server consolidation, manageability and disaster recovery purposes. "We believe companies are looking for self-managed dynamic systems in the future. Many of them already have server power, and are now looking to get utilization up for existing servers, [as well as achieve] high availability ad [perform] platform simulation," he said.
