Gartner Reports Virtualization could slash IT budgets


Computing costs are set to fall as a new wave of infrastructure technology helps companies to consolidate their security network devices, experts said on Tuesday.

According to research presented by Stephen Prentice, general vice-president of hardware research for Gartner, companies could make massive savings by using ‘virtualized’ networking in favor of a selection of hardware devices.

“As the price of hardware has fallen, it has encouraged us to invest in more hardware,” said Prentice. “But the cost of managing devices is unbearable and we need something to sort it out. Virtualization is a step towards that — it’s flexible and has an automated environment — a primary request for a complete IT infrastructure. The challenge is in building it.”

Network virtualization, often called utility computing, or as Gartner calls it ‘real-time infrastructure’, is the consolidation of hardware devices in a logical environment. For example, one virtual network device could take an image of a physical network rack and make a digital version of it, keeping all the devices separate in its memory.
