Q&A: Microsoft vs. VMware
Bucharest, March 20, 2008
Jonathan Perera – Platform Application Manager, Microsoft Corp., said that price was the main inhibitor in adoption of virtualisation bz companies. Only 5-10% of servers worldwide are now virtualised, and 90% of those are Windows servers. In CEE, under 2% of servers are virtualised, added Rane STEMPSON – Central Eastern Europe Core Infrastructure Lead, Microsoft Deutschland GmbH.
Since 73% of companies worldwide use Microsoft .net technologies, Jonathan Perera counts on SaaS (or “software plus services”) to atract enterprises to use the virtualisation technologies available in Windows Server 2008.
