Virtual Iron joins Microsoft's Interop alliance

While many firms are still gushing over VMware, excited about XenSource (or atleast getting the market excited about it), it is Virtual Iron who is slowly and gradually gaining momentum. I must say that this shy company, who never raises too much dust, will surely surprise us.

“Virtual Iron is an important addition to the Interop Vendor Alliance,” said David Greschler, director of integrated virtualization strategy for Microsoft. “Tighter integration with Microsoft technologies will provide our mutual customers with highly reliable and easy to implement solutions for server virtualization and virtual infrastructure management in their environments.”

“From a user’s perspective, the greater the interoperability, the better,” said Stephen Bakerman, IT manager at Owen Bird, a law firm in Vancouver, British Columbia. “Like many organizations, we are running multiple Microsoft applications including SQL Server, Exchange and Office. Knowing that Virtual Iron is working with Microsoft and other members of the alliance to remove interoperability issues, gives us great confidence as we look to expand our deployment of virtualization and management.”
