CDW: Based on a survey with 387 IT executives in medium to large organizations, CDW finds that the server virtualization market is maturing. In fact 90 percent of those surveyed have deployed some type of virtualization technology. However, at the companies that have “fully deployed” virtualization, an average of only 37 percent of their server infrastructure is virtualized.

The biggest concerns with adopting virtualization include security, hardware that does not support virtualization, and applications that should not run on a virtual server.

Of those companies that have implemented the technology, 95 percent say they are seeing cost savings, and 94 percent are experiencing other business benefits.
