Express Computers Mumbai: Virtualization is hot!

R Ravichandran, Sales Director, South Asia, Intel states, “We have written a set of specifications for the platform and given it to the likes of VMware, Microsoft and Xensource. They have all written their software so that they have APIs that support our hardware. Therefore, we still need those VMM vendors or software, the hardware support is a complimentary function.”

"VMware is the only vendor that provides the reliability that comes from thousands of production implementations as well as the business value that comes from built in automation and availability of VMware virtual machines"

VMware has long worked in collaboration with server and operating system vendors. “Despite the entrance of server and OS vendors in the virtualization space, it is not hard to see VMware’s leadership continuing. By not being a server or OS vendor, VMware provides complete choice to our users and allows them to virtualize the infrastructure and run the IT stack that is optimal for the user, without forcing server and OS selections based on a virtualization component,” insists Jim Lenox, Country Manager VMware-ASEAN & India. He adds, “While some of the suppliers may be striving to achieve a basic hypervisor offering, VMware is the only vendor that provides the reliability that comes from thousands of production implementations as well as the business value that comes from built in automation and availability of VMware virtual machines.”
