Another emerging trend for 2009 is virtual I/O. Multiple vendors are rolling out solutions that do for the server I/O infrastructure (all the switches, cards, and cables) what VMware did for the server itself.

Dell just announced a deal with Xsigo (www.xsigo.com), and HP and Emulex just had announcements as well. The technology will do a lot to reduce cost by getting rid of gear.
