From a reduction of hardware standpoint I would agree, but from the virtualization we've already done, I see a tendency toward "VM sprawl". While the elimination of hardware is significant I do think the full benefit is somewhat diluted since it does still take time and resources to manage VMs.
Anyone else have thoughts on this?
