SINGAPORE'S data centres have taken to server virtualisation more than its Asean neighbours, and yet only 18 per cent of servers here are virtualised, said a VMware executive. VMware provides cloud and virtualisation software and services and is a subsidiary of EMC Corporation.

Quoting IDC statistics, VMware's Asean vice-president and general manager, Jon Robertson, said that a massive 82 per cent of x86 servers here have not yet been virtualised. "We still have a lot of work to do," he said.

In contrast, 80 per cent of Australia's servers are virtualised, he said, adding that this was, however, quite an anomaly, with the global average falling below the 50 per cent mark.
