VMlogix heading towards becoming a cross-platform lab manager

Startup VMLogix has launched LabManager, a product for conducting software builds and testing new software as it comes out of the development process.

VMware, the dominant virtualization vendor, has a similar product by the same name, VMware Lab Manager, first introduced in November 2006. VMLogix was a few months behind, launching LabManager in July 2007. In the current 3.3 version release announced Jan. 28, VMLogix LabManager can conduct software quality assurance and testing in virtualized environments under VMware's ESX Server orCitrix (NSDQ: CTXS) XenServer, "the only virtual lab automation solution on the market to support XenServer."

"We are finally presenting an alternative to VMware," said Sameer Dholakia, CEO, in an interview.

Support for Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT)'s Hyper-V hypervisor will soon follow, as well as Oracle (NSDQ: ORCL) and Sun Microsystems (NSDQ: JAVA) hypervisors, both based on XenSource's Xen hypervisor, Dholakia said. VMLogix seeks to be the first cross vendor supplier of virtualization test lab software.
