Virtualization Defies the Credit Crunch

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 06, 2009 -- Despite the credit crunch dealing out blows to almost every industry in the world over the recent months, Virtualization and the recruitment of skilled professionals within this dynamic sector continues its astounding growth of recent years and could hardly be healthier.

Market research firm IDC forecasts the virtualization services market will grow to $11.7 billion in 2011 with the ongoing transition of virtualization into the mainstream. Hardware virtualization (VMware, Hyper-V, XenServer), application virtualization (SoftGrid/App-V, Citrix, VMware ThinApp), or desktop virtualization (VDI) has been lead by VMware for jobs but we are also now seeing OS virtualization on the increase. With two major players, Sun and Parallels now being joined by iCore Software. Subsequently we will see yet another rise and shift in virtualization recruitment trends.

More employers are now recognizing the need for a new class of IT professional skilled in this technology. But where do those companies turn?

"Throughout the world companies now turn to VM People, The Virtualization and Cloud Computing Job Board to enhance their search for talented professionals" says Mike Hilton, one of the founders of VM People.
