I had a meeting with a group of executives during lunch the other day. It was one of those that the "geek" gets to show up and they ask a bunch of dumbass questions (at least that is what it has been), like I can't get my all-in-one printer to work. I exaggerated that last statement of course, but you get my drift.
But one guy stands up and says that he has been hearing a lot about this "virtualization thing" and "how many companies out there are there in that industry". I thought "WOW", that came out of left field. It just so happens that I ran across the "Virtualization Vendor Matrix" the other day and printed off a few copies to carry around in my briefcase. I shared this with the guy and I swear if he could have given birth to something he would have. I love sharing knowledge and ideas and seeing the lightbulb go on for people. I get totally jazzed man, I'm tellin ya.
Anyway, I wanted to share this matrix with the rest of you as well. I'm not expecting lightbulbs or people giving birth to large cows or crapping bricks sideways, but it's a good collection of companies that are involved in the virtualization space.
You can find it here. Enjoy
