Verizon Business promotes virtualization

Verizon Business announced a full slate of server virtualization offerings for enterprise customers last year at a time when many telcos were eyeing the rapidly rising sector, and then expanded its portfolio last spring. Now, the carrier is stoking the market with a series of "series of tips" for helping enterprises pursue virtualization projects.

Those tips, according to a Verizon press release, include making sure you have the big picture in mind; working closely with vendors to ensure full platform support; evaluating licensing costs connected with your migration--well, there's a couple more, but you get the idea. It's the sort of advice your mom might give you if she knew anything about virtualization and you were running out the door of your parents' house to jump on your bike and ride down to the virtualization store. In other words, the pointers are things that any technology buyer should know and consider, though I wonder if Verizon is offering tips because it has found that some enterprises are slow to start virtualization projects.
