Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

Very interesting news, especially when you consider this is coming out just a week prior to the VMworld event in SanFrancisco? Surely this news might have been worthy of being released then? So why the rush? Does this actually indicate that VMware is concerned about competion? I wonder how VMware's stock price is going?

It was also interesting to note that as much as Citrix have been very lacklustre about announcing any particular roadmap of how they are going to integrate Ardence in to their offerings, the same could not be said for XenSource, it's now already included with presentations to Customers and Partners - but it seems that the word has gone out to replace all VMware Demos with XenSource based alternatives ASAP......

VMware to slash VI3 price for SMBs

virtualization.info has learned VMware is about to drastically reduce VMware Infrastructure 3 (aka ESX Server & VirtualCenter) price.

In September, possible with a launch at VMworld 2007, VMware will announce a new promotion called Foundation, bundling together three ESX Servers Started Edition and one VirtualCenter (capped to manage those three virtualization hosts) for $3,000.

more at source...
