VMware Faces Competition For Virtualisation Market

Filed under
Software

Open Source-based developer, Xen - which already claims relationships with Linux vendors, as well as with Microsoft, is finally ready to release its XenEnterprise server virtualisation platform. And it ships next week.

Making the announcement at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Franciso, XenSource, CEO, Peter Levine made the standard platitudes regarding ease of use and 'hunger' in the market.

One fly in the XenEnterprise story, however, is that major Linux vendor (with some support from market analysts) Red Hat is not ready to ship Xen project-related product (including XenEnterprise) in its Red Hat Enterprise Linux offering.

Any in-fighting that includes major Linux players plus a Microsoft tie-in can only serve (and not just virtually) to bring smiles to the faces of EMC, the owner of VMware.

Full Story.
