VMware's DPM (Distributed Power Management) in action




Cool video but...
- Everything that is being done at the kernel level will eventually (if not already) pass on to the hardware. Virtualization has gone to the chipsets and the chipsets will also do the following:

- DPM
- Fabric Motion (lot faster)
- Fabric Security
- Fabric Privacy

So you see, all the intelligence is going into the fabric and eventually the OS and the hypervisor will not only be thinned to bare minimum but may virtually vanish as they, or should I say their critical function (OS: host applications, Hypervisor: host OS and Apps stack) gets absorbed into the hardware.

But for now, this video may give you the idea of where we're eventully heading for.
