The Burton Group’s Chris Wolf is interviewed by Alex Barrett about the Future of Virtualization, and some context creep results in a message that’s not true to Chris’s points.

Chris Wolf took exception, and the time, to write not really a rebuttal of Alex’s article, but let’s say a “firm clarification” of the points taken out of context in her article.

Both are a very interesting read for anyone who’s even slightly interested in the very active Virtualization marketplace. Regardless of who said what, the main point is that while VMWare is the clear leader now, Xen virtualization is catching up, and while it may not surpass VMWare, it will become a very viable option for enterprise virtualization needs.

Enjoy,
