VMware releases VMware Server 2 beta!

EW reportign:

On Nov. 13, VMware will offer the beta version of its VMware Server 2, a free virtualization tool that allows users to partition a single physical server into multiple virtual machines. The software works both within Microsoft Windows and Linux environments.

VMware released the first version of its free software in February 2006, and the company estimates that more than 3 million copies of the software has been downloaded since then. The new beta is available for download Nov. 13 and will become generally available in the first half of 2008.

The new version will offer new support for more operating systems, including Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and Ubuntu 7.10. Unlike VMware products, such as the Virtual Infrastructure 3 suite that allows for bare-metal hardware virtualization, the free Server 2 beta runs on top of the operating system.

There are also new management tools, including a Web-based management interface, said Ben Matheson, director of VMware's Small and Medium Business Division.
