Sun's Virtualization Volley

Seems like everyone's getting into virtualization. Sun will soon roll out its virtualization management console software called xVM Ops Center, 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 levels.

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.

What's your virtualization strategy? How do you feel about this intersection of the open source and virtualization worlds? Tell me the real deal at llow@redmondmag.com.
