NEWS: Forrester Research – Windows Server 2012 “should be the platform of choice”

image“…WS2012 should be the platform of choice, and any preconceived notions about Microsoft versus VMware for the virtualization layer need to be re-examined.”

Yeah, that’s the money quote there.  This is one helluva write up done by Richard Fichera however and it’s clear he gets how revolutionary this release is.  He doesn’t just go through virtualization but all other aspects of flexible datacenter computing, in particular the need for automation, reliability, and scale.

But he spends a bit of time talking about it’s positioning with the cloud which is important.
