Virtualization and Cloud Predictions for 2012 - Find Out in VMblog's 4th Annual Prediction Series

I'd like to personally welcome each and every one of you to the start of 2012!  As we begin what will certainly prove to be a fantastic new year, I wanted to make sure to thank all of the loyal member's and readers of  Once again, with the help of each of you, VMblog has been able to remain one of the oldest and most successful virtualization and cloud news sites on the Web -- providing readers with valuable information in these expanding markets for the last 8 years!  Man, has this industry changed since 2004 or what?

I'd also like to take this time to once again thank my many valued sponsors for their continued support throughout 2011:  Acronis, Citrix, CommVault, CopperEgg, DataCore Software, EMC, Liquidware Labs, Parallels, Quest Software, Starwind Software, Surgient, Symantec, Veeam, VKernel, VMTurbo, Vyatta and Zenoss.  You guys help make this site possible! 

2011 was an amazing year for our shared technology and passion. Each year, we've been increasing our little club of virtualization and cloud enthusiasts and I expect 2012 to continue that trend at an increasing rate.  2011 witnessed a lot of changes in our community.  We've seen a lot of fan favorite companies get acquired, and you can bet that in 2012, we'll see more make or break opportunities for a lot of the remaining companies.  But luckily, we'll also see an explosion of new startups trying to take advantage of some of the new technologies being made available, which should prove exciting to watch.  So strap yourselves in, raise and lock your seat trays, and please put your seats in the upright position. 2012 is going to get interesting!

To help us predict just how interesting things will get, VMblog has continued its fun and successful Executive Prediction Series.  This is the 4th year in a row for the series, and it's bigger than ever this year!  With nearly 100 executives checking in this year, we have predictions from some old familar names as well as many new comers to the series.  And this year, company executives have taken on server virtualization, application virtualization, storage virtualization, desktop virtualization, as well as big data, networking, security, I/O optimization, SSD, databases, public, private and hybrid clouds... and more!  Some of these executives have even opted to take a look back at last year's predictions to see how well they did. 

If you didn't have a chance to keep up with the series throughout the months of November and December, now is your chance to catch up and read what these experts have predicted. Enjoy!



And once again, I'd like to thank all of these companies and their executives for taking the time to share with us their vision and predictions of where this technology and where the market is headed throughout 2012.
