Next Generation Virtualization Server: VMware Server Quick look!


A couple of nexts and you see it's really our GSX server. But only a better and a powerful virtualization platform to get all those crazy ideas of yours running!

And after a couple of next clicks you're done!

Things that I spotted on this quick look!
  • It has dual CPU support, so if you have a hyperthreaded CPU laptop, your VM will also see dual CPU.
  • I had to get rid of my both ESX and GSX client programs and my VM WorkStation. :-|
  • It is in DEBUG mode, so be careful. I've reloaded my UBuntu in it and it gave me this warning.
  • This piece of software could go anywhere, in my opinion its gonna be a community product , the idea behind is to beat Xen to the punch in its *open source* game and beat MS in it *can't get any cheaper than free, ain't it?* game!

Attagirl, Greene. I like your style! :-)
