Monthly Technobrief – June 2010

| Point of View

Development in virtualized environments.

The announcements on virtualization seem never ending as more and more elements of the computational infostructure become ‘virtualized’, but at the same time the leading edge is shifting towards partnerships between major technology vendors to create new ‘environments’.

This last month has seen the creation of VMForce – a joint partnership between VMware and SalesForce.com, 2 market leaders and challengers to the ‘status quo’ of current IT deployment.

The Monthly Technology Brief examines how these new virtualized environments create Platforms, PaaS, on which software development can be simplified and dramatically speeded up as well as looking at other major announcements in the industry.
