Hmmm, I think virtualisation is going to have an impact. For example, our company was thinking of buying 20 servers. However, after our investigation into VMWare and similar products we decided to only buy 8 servers. All of them run virtual machines and it seems to far better to maintain and to upgrade.
Maybe Sun needs to start dealing with VMWare and produce something that will improve their revenue and offer competitive products.
