Virtualization on the digital highway...

A quick round up on the news from yesterday and today.

VMware Infrastructure 3 was released and was slashdotted too. Cool! So you know what my idea and vision on the future of Virtualization is and what VMware ought to be thinking (I'm sure the guys are).

  • Make it a utility , so pervasive that you don't have to worry on the sales target anymore.
  • Hook up to all collaborative options.
  • Serve VMware virtualization ready Servers and desktops.
  • Help companies really digg the idea of NOT outsourcing but by virtualizing stuff. After all when the tide is going to shift from globalization to localization, you don't wanna be left high and dry
  • Ride the tide
  • Surf and anti-surf the tide

Sometimes a simple introduction always helps focus on the goals. While VirtualIron goes on to explore the clustering side of it. I always favor ideas of trying for free before buying.

More talk on VMware and MS's chess game. But this game is just like Google vs MS.

Here's the deal:

One leads, other follows
One innovates, other acquires
Me balloon, you gas
I'm on a high, you're dry
Me in Lab, you in bathtub
Me code, you erode

Ya digg?
