Every day, I read about cloud computing and something as a service - IaaS, SaaS and a myriad of XaaS. Have you heard of BaaS? Branch as a service. Yes, I totally made that up but not far from the truth. Virtualization is one of the key technologies unleashing the power of XaaS. My point is, virtualization has reached the branch going beyond the boundaries of the data center. A converged infrastructure of server and network have come together to put total control in the hands of the customer. Pick the most appropriate off the shelf application for your business that is certified to run in VMware vSphere 5.0 or XenServer and deliver the capability to reduce time to service and reduce TCO in the branch.
