Sun's Virtualization Volley
Seems like everyone's getting into virtualization. Sun will soon roll out its
virtualization management console software called xVM
, a management tool for discovery, provisioning, monitoring and
reporting both virtual and physical assets through one console.
Sun xVM Ops Center gives you tools and utilities for managing software updates,
compliance reporting, hardware and software asset discovery, provisioning server
systems, system monitoring, maintaining threshold settings and setting alert
The download is free, but the support will cost you. Sun expects service contracts
to run up to $350 per server. Check out http://www.openxvm.org,
which is the open source community for building datacenter virtualization and
management technologies. You can see more about Sun's entry here.

of the open source and virtualization worlds? Tell me the real deal at email@example.com.
