Virtualization Watch

Virtualization has gained a lot of traction in the developer community, particularly in the areas of QA and test. And it's become so ubiquitous in the general IT space that our parent company, Redmond Media Group, recently launched a new publication called Virtualization Review to provide dedicated coverage of virtualization issues. You can find the Web site here.

My question is: Are you, as developers, actively moving to virtualized environments and solutions as a way to improve productivity, broaden the scope of your work and achieve higher efficiencies? If so, we want to hear from you.

Tell us how you're making use of virtualization in your development operations and what you want to see tool vendors provide. This is your chance to tell the industry what you need to get work done. E-mail me at [email protected].
