VMware: The Next Virtualization Administrator
There is no doubt that IT changes at a rapid pace, not only from a technology perspective, but from an organizational perspective as well. About 10 years ago the OPEX and CAPEX benefits of virtualization propelled the industry in new directions, reducing the need for segregated physical servers while increasing the need for a new breed – the virtualization administrator.
