Good article. I go back to the ending sentence: “but assuming you control sprawl, virtualization is typically worth it from an ROI perspective.”
Sprawl is much the same, whether physical or virtual. We have finite resources and definite deadlines. The bottom line is that we need effective capacity planning, configuration management, and change management. The better capacity meets requirements, the closer our foot print will reflect business demand. The faster we can affect change, thru configuration and change management, the better we can meet changing demands.
Personally, I am more focused on improving our capacity and flexibility. Sprawl I can manage.
