    Agreed.  I’m looking into going heavily into virtualization where I’m working.  The promise has become that you can finally detach the "server" from the "box" and move it on-demand to where the resources are.  

    it makes for some interesting IA policy questions and it takes a lot of hardware infrastructure to pull it off, but it is an interesting promise.
