Re: Virtualization Deployment
It's great for those who can use it and deploy it, but those without it are still doing fine.

Virtualization Deployment
Thirty percent of companies say that will complete virtualization by 2020. Ninety percent of companies say they will have started the process of virtualization. These are realistic statistics.

There are many benefits for using virtualization but is not the best solution for every company.

Re: A Course for Virtualization: Deployment
@DHagar: It's simple risk aversion.  It's why people were slow to adopt LASIK eye surgery, for example; they wanted to see how blind/screwed up the people who had it would be in 10 years.

Re: A Course for Virtualization: Deployment
Joe, good analogy.  You may be right - and if it pays, creates a satisfied customer and a market, that works!

It's amazing how some people don't see the opportunity, but will wait and follow others who have created the opportunity.

Re: A Course for Virtualization: Deployment
@DHagar: I think it's even simpler than that -- that it's the same reason why oncologists tell cancer patients they have 3 months to live when they probably have a good year or two ahead of them.  You can then take credit for a "miracle."

Re: A Course for Virtualization: Deployment
There's also, arguably, a very strong physical security benefit to virtualization -- insofar that by reducing the amount of physical space you're taking up with servers and other hardware, you're reducing the amount of physical vulnerability.

(And this doesn't even account for the "less tangible" InfoSec benefits with certain virtualized solutions (e.g., unikernels)).

Obsolescence
I highly suspect that by 2023, much of that virtualization technology that telcos are currently working to deploy will be obsolete.

Or do these data account for obsolescence and upgrading along the deployment path?

Re: A Course for Virtualization: Deployment
@DHagar:

Exactly. And the % shown in the post speaks for itself. The lack of clear vision at the top leadership could be considered as one of the reasons why we see long awaited timelines before Virtualization is live for many companies in this post.

Re: When is anything done on time and under budget?
mhhf1ve, and they are trying to hit the bulls eye.  I predict that leading service providers will find true customer solutions (ala Apple) that really attract and drive that cutomer appetite for something better.  That will unleash the opportunities and attract customers and cause other service providers to get on board.

Re: A Course for Virtualization: Deployment
ms.akkineni, very true.  The top leadership controls the resources and therefore either drives the changes and focus forward or limits it by their vision.  I truly believe that some at the top still do not truly understand the opportunities in virtualization and therefore limit its development and use in the marketplace.
