Midmarket companies have an advantage over larger enterprises: fewer servers and server applications. This, according to this IT Business Edge story, is one reason why server virtualization has experienced especially rapid uptake among midmarket companies.

Server Virtualization sees rapid uptake among midmarket companies.

"When I interviewed Gartner VP and analyst James Browning, he told me most midmarket companies (one of his research specialties) experienced few real problems when they virtualized servers .They were so successful that a surprising number of them are considering virtualizing more servers -- lots more. Browning predicts 40 percent of midsize companies will virtualize more than 80 percent of their server infrastructures by the end of 2012.

"That sounds like a big number, and it is, but midmarket companies enjoy an advantage because they have fewer servers and fewer server applications than larger enterprises. In addition, many of them have standardized on x86 servers."
