Infrastructure and operations (I&O) executives and their engineering teams often ask Forrester two questions about server virtualization: Have we virtualized as many workloads as our peers, and how can we virtualize more? This benchmarks report showcases the following data to help you plan the next phase of your virtualization journey: 1) virtualization adoption rates; 2) virtualization plans relative to physical and cloud deployments; 3) what drives enterprises to virtualize; 4) virtualization management strategies; and 5) virtualization vendor preferences. Forrester's Forrsights Hardware Survey, Q3 2013, fielded to 2,330 hardware decision-makers in Europe and North America, powers the data in this report. I&O executives should use this data to discover, plan, act on, and optimize their virtualization initiatives.
