Virtualization in 2008: Hypervisor will take a lot of heat!

It surely will be a year to remember, mark my words!

Paul has some pointers:

Sometime in the first quarter of 2008, Microsoft will be releasing its Hyper-V hypervisor for the software vendor's Windows Server 2008 server operating system platform.

VMware will respond from the vantage point of eight years of experience in virtualization and the "maturity" of its hypervisor, stated Bogomil Balkansky, its senior director, product marketing.

Making allusions to Microsoft's difficulties in the past with other software products, the VMware spokesperson bluntly asserted that "the burden of proof for stability [for a hypervisor product] is higher than any other piece of software."

The competition will possibly begin this spring when customers will be presented for the first time with a choice of popular servers from the likes of Hewlett-Packard and Dell embedded with hypervisors from either VMware or Microsoft, stated John Sloan, senior research analyst at Info-Tech Research Group.
