In its report, "Storage Choices For Virtual Server Environments, Q1 2011," Forrester Research says that the use of virtual server technologies took off over the past year, proving that that virtualization has finally past the point where it's mainly used in testing and development roles. In fact, 91 percent of respondents told Forrester researchers that they are using virtual servers for production workloads. That's up dramatically from 78 percent last year, the report said. What that means, Andrew Reichman, the Forrester Analyst who principally wrote the report said, is that server virtualization has now developed into a mature market.
