Virtualization, Round 2
Microsoft went to the enemy's camp and made
an announcement at VMworld
this week, but Microsoft's announcement of the
Virtual Hard Disk Test Drive is not exactly a blockbuster. Test Drive is a bunch
of test software, including third-party tools, that show off the virtues of
virtualization. Oh, this is just like what VMware did 12 or so months ago!
VMware isn't above mimicking the success of others. VMware Lab Manager sounds
uncannily similar to what Surgient and others have been up to for a while --
using virtualization to develop and test large software deployment before they
are actually deployed.
