Burton Group Analysts Promote Virtualization as the Keystone to Cloud Computing at VMworld
Burton Group, a research and consulting firm focused on in-depth analysis of enterprise information technologies, will join virtualization enthusiasts at VMworld 2009 to present vendor hypervisor evaluation scorecards, cloud computing models, and opportunities with virtualization.

The growing reality of “IT externalization” and the transition to a dynamic, service-oriented data center are causing IT architects to reevaluate capital expenditures, traditional IT operations, support, and management methods. Virtualization is a logical piece of many organizations’ externalization and dynamic data center visions. Burton Group’s presentations at VMworld are geared to assisting IT organizations through sticking points with virtualization technologies, licensing, and cloud computing implantation.

Burton Group VP and service director Richard Jones said, “This year Burton Group’s presentations include a strong Cloud computing theme promoting virtualization as the foundation for cloud delivery.” Burton Group’s Cloud computing overview report has quickly become the de facto standard for cloud definition and terminology. But successful clouds still require the right building blocks, including virtualization hypervisors. However, finding the right virtualization capabilities requires looking beyond the vendor data sheets.

Analysts Chris Wolf and Richards Jones will present an updated Burton Group Catalyst Conference presentation highlighting detailed requirements for production worthy hypervisors and rankings for VMware vSphere 4, Citrix XenServer 5.5, and Microsoft Hyper-V R2 Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. in Espanade 305. Come to the Burton Group booth to see how major hypervisor products rank in Burton Group’s enterprise production class hypervisor evaluation criteria.

Follow Burton Group’s Data Center Strategies analyst’s thoughts and conference insights on the latest industry announcements via Twitter and the Burton Group Data Center Blog. Chris Wolf has a complimentary VMworld preview webcast and blog post.
