Virtualisation Architecture

Virtualisation has changed from a gadget to a hype to a proven solution. There is a myriad of products providing Virtualisation from servers, desktop, applications, appliances and data centers. The advantages are clear, but choosing which steps to take is often unclear.

An Organisation can choose to become a "Microsoft Shop or VMware Shop" and use only Virtualisation products from that Vendor. With that comes vendor lock-in but also good integration and management. A mixed Vendor solution is also possible, which requires more effort in setting up integration and management.

From an Infratesting perspective whatever solution you choose is irrelevant, every solution can be tested. What is important, is that there is a clear Architectural view and Roadmap for Virtualisation. Virtualisation often starts bottom up and is IT driven. This could result in the wrong choice for a solution.
Therefor Virtualisation should be lifted to a higher level and give a top down approach.

That is the only way to get a Real instead of a Virtual Solution.
