BSM to the Rescue

In September, Zenoss released the 2010 Virtualization and Cloud Computing Survey, which took the temperature of over 200 IT professionals about their reasons for using virtualization and the cloud. Some of our results were about as surprising as rain in Seattle: 40.7% of survey respondents said they prefer to deploy servers virtually, 79.3% of them said they are using VMware and the number one goal with regards to using virtual infrastructure was to save money. Many of the results were more intriguing, but the conclusion that most piqued our interest here at Zenoss was that the number two concern about cloud computing, after security, was management/monitoring.
