VMLM: Virtual Machine LifeCycle Management
Virtual machine life cycle management systems firm Embotics only had its coming-out party earlier this month, and its flagship V-Commander product is still in its beta testing stage.
However, the company definitely wasn't idly biding its time while in stealth mode – in December it attracted an undisclosed amount of funding and it's already seeing product revenues. It's put its product out for testing across several companies in the pharmaceutical, telecommunications, Internet hosting, financial services and manufacturing sectors.
The company has a relatively simple proposition for a complicated technology that's become increasingly important for large firms. What happens with virtualization is that companies can now easily set up new virtual servers – each of which houses a copy of an application program – without complex hardware configurations.
