Grid, Virtualization Get Closer

"For 2007, the analysts predicted that:
Virtualization will go mainstream, changing the data center.
Grid infrastructure will get baked in to support utility computing, on-demand and SaaS activities.
SOA will move from experimentation to implementation.
Virtualization will allow grids to be absorbed into enterprise fabrics.
DataSynapse and Platform 'will continue to segue into adjacent verticals and away from using the 'G' word,' while companies such as EDS, CSC, Capgemini, Accenture and Atos Origin will begin to offer grid-based utility services. VMware, XenSource and Virtual Iron 'will begin to bump up against grid management vendors,' they said. "
