VMware moves vCenter to Linux
VMware will release future versions of vCenter, its flagship virtualisation-management software, in Linux versions as well as for Windows, the company's chief technology officer said on Wednesday.
Chief technology officer Stephen Herrod announced the move for vCenter, formerly called Virtual Center Server, in a keynote speech at the VMworld 2009 conference in Cannes.
"We have enabled vCenter Server to be installed directly on Linux," he said. VMware first said it would release a Linux version of the management software at its last VMworld conference, in September.
