Virtualisation 2020 campaign
VMware has launched the Virtualisation 2020 campaign to help businesses move from the client -server era to the mobile cloud era of computing.
As a first step, VMware sponsored the IDC Server Economies Index to demonstrate the potential of virtualisation in the Asia Pacific. The Index provides an analysis on virtualisation over the past 10 years and looks forward through 2020.
It highlighted that approximately RM3.4 billion worth of spending is expected to be avoided in Malaysia from 2003-2020 due to the impact of server virtualisation.
The findings indicate that cost savings could rise three-fold, from RM860 million to RM3.4 billion, (comparing the period of 2003- 12 with 2013-20) if more businesses adopt virtualisation in the future.
