Cloud Computing and Virtualization are a lot more than mere buzz words for most organizations. Even mid to large cap companies with robust revenue streams are focusing on cost efficiencies and Cloud computing is doing just that by allowing firms to migrate their applications and user interfaces to cloud-based solutions. Given the obvious benefits of using virtualized technology, most companies are now joining the early-adapters in hastening their migrations to Cloud Computing; to accelerate their growth without incurring the usual infrastructure investment. Though not a new concept, it is predicted that 2010-11 will propel this concept to an industry standard for affordable/optimized computing.
