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.

I'm starting to wonder what is left for VMware to announce at VMworld? RSA integration, Cheaper pricing for SMB's and now news that VMware has acquired Dunes as well....

Earlier I noticed Citrix and XenSources road to market just got steeper - VMware's price bubble coming under threat?  where VMware was making the entry point for SMB's a whole lot cheaper:

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...

And now Aleassandro has broken the news about VMware buying Dunes:

VMware acquired Dunes Technologies?
virtualization.info just received a news from a trusted source revealing VMware has acquired Dunes Technology.

If confirmed VMware achieved two goals: making another step towards virtual datacenter automation, given the great flexibility Dunes VS-O automation framework offers, and further enhancing VDI offering after Propero acquisition (Dunes offers a VDI solution called VD-O since one year).

The acquisition, assuming it's true, is expected to be announced at VMworld.View video

Comments on this post: Even before VMworld kicks off Citrix is starting to look like it has a mountain to climb?
