In a very informative interview with the folks over at, Hyperic CEO Dr. Javier Saltero discussed virtualization, Linux adoption and virtual machine management.

Though likely the first interview of the leadup to Linuxworld’s expected tsunami of everything even remotely connected to virtualization, he makes some apt observations, such as: What will the impact of virtualization be, and what has it been on Linux adoption?
Javier Soltero: Virtualization is the most likely technology and technology trend that will have an impact on the adoption of Linux servers in the enterprise. We’re at the very beginning of this effect since virtualization itself is taking hold in large-scale data centers just this year. Over time it will be even more.
