VMware Lab Manager 3 is here!

Melinda Wilkin, senior marketing director for VMware, told that Lab Manager frees IT from the tedius job of constantly setting up and tearing down test servers.

"Typically, what you find is a bunch of users that need access to hardware resources that then need to be configured," she explained.

"They rely on IT to do that configuration and setup, and it creates a lot of server sprawl. IT was being bombarded with requests for the provisioning of these machines."

Users can access the Lab Manager system through an online portal. The user then downloads the test system as a disk image along with any settings set by the administrator.

The latest version of Lab Manager adds the ability to support multiple locations. This allows an administrator to use one system to control a testing program in a number of sites.

3.0 also adds the ability to test for various network conditions and a new system to set pre-set roles with various settings and permissions for different users.
