Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) of all sizes are rapidly adopting virtualization and achieving significant benefits in a number of areas. That is a key finding from VMware's survey of 309 senior business and IT managers at companies with 20 to 1,000 employees in the United States and Canada conducted in November 2009. In particular, with virtualization SMBs are reducing the time spent on routine IT administrative tasks, such as adding and managing new server workloads, adding new employees or developing and launching new applications; they are also becoming more responsive to business needs.

This white paper is also intended to provide SMBs with benchmarks on how their peers are getting the most from their investments in IT infrastructure.
