Yesterday I have been watching the official launch off vSphere 4. Well I can tell you this will be a giant step. VMware has worked together with a number of hardware vendors to make it work like it should do. Running a heavy loaded Sql and Oracle server as a virtual machine.
"More than ten years ago VMware pioneered the industry of virtualization with server consolidation and virtualization for x86 systems. Today cloud computing and virtualization are popular buzzwords and there are many competitors who have jumped on the bandwagon.
VMware is continuing to lead the revolution in the datacenter with the launch of vSphere 4. VMware vSphere 4 is the industry’s first cloud operating system, transforming datacenters into dramatically simplified environments to enable the next generation of flexible, reliable IT services."
