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.

So Allessandro is certainly well connected in the Virtualization space and as XenSource will be clearly getting some serious airtime in just over 2 weeks time at the newly re-badged iForum (oops, Application Delivery Expo) hosted by Citrix then I'm sure that VMware will be trying to make sure that it has some choice announcements just before and even during the last week of October.

Note to self - must be less cynical ;-)

For those who will be attending iForum 2007 in Las Vegas, please drop me a note if you'd like to have a chat, as I'll be attending as an employee of Neoware Inc. (a wholly owned subsidiary of HP)
VMware Infrastructure 3.5 and ESX Server 3i to be available since December 2007 with new prices and editions

Wednesday, October 03, 2007   |   1 Comments

The upcoming major update in VMware Infrastructure 3.x, called 3.5, and new ESX Server 3i will be available to general public in December 2007, has learned. An official announcement is expected next week.

virtualization already broke the news about new features and enhancements that will appear in VI 3.5, including ESX Server 3i integration into servers from popular OEMs like Dell, IBM, HP. But the biggest news emerges only now: VMware will also sell ESX Server 3i as stand-alone product, with support for SATA storage devices, at less than $500.

What will change in details with new VI 3.5 offering:

  • ESX Server 3i becomes the lowest entry-level for enterprise virtualization. It will have just basic capabilities (VMFS and vSMP) and will not be manageable by a VirtualCenter.
  • more at source... VMware Infrastructure 3.5 and ESX Server 3i to be available since December 2007 with new prices and editions
