Analyst Firm Claims Desktop Virtualisation Equally Popular As Green IT

A new study has revealed that while green IT has emerged as the latest “hot” trend amongst CIOs (Chief Information Officer) all across the world, desktop virtualisation has been steadily making its way to become the most sought after environment-friendly infrastructure solution.

The study, carried out by the IT analyst Ovum also claimed that the number of IT organisations taking shelter in green IT solutions increased by over 70 percent in the second half of 2010.

The Ovum report has helped establishing the fact that the rise in demand for an eco-friendly IT infrastructure has remained pretty steady over the past couple of years. Another study carried out by the firm earlier showed the rise in green IT demand by almost 68 percent during the first half of the year.

"This growth in green IT penetration reflects a change of attitude by CIOs and other IT decision-makers," Rhonda Ascierto, an analyst at the firm and author of the Green IT Deployments Across Key Global Markets report said, OneStopClick reports.

She also added that green IT has essentially established itself as a “core” technology when it came to lowering the expenditures of a firm.
