The article reports on the growing number of companies opting for virtualization in moving servers from one location to another in the U.S. According to the author, surveys from Forrester Research Inc. reflect that already 40% of companies are using virtualization in 2006, which is up from 29% in 2005. Moreover, the use of virtualization allows for the transformation of unused computing resources into virtual ones, making transportation easy and less costly.
