VMware Unveils Next Generation Hypervisor to Be Integrated in Server Hardware
Raises the bar for reliability, security and ease of use for the virtualization platform

Building virtualization into the server hardware simplifies the deployment and management of virtual infrastructure. With VMware ESX Server 3i – a next-generation thin hypervisor to be integrated in server hardware from Dell, Fujitsu, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, HP, IBM, NEC and others – customers will be able to go from booting up a server to reaping the benefits of virtualization in a matter of minutes.

“Today, VMware is ushering in a new era where virtualization software is not separate from server hardware; it is simply how industry-standard servers operate,” said Raghu Raghuram, vice president of products and solutions at VMware. “We have worked with our partners to integrate VMware ESX Server directly into their server hardware. Now customers will be able to turn on their virtualization-enabled servers and boot directly into a fully functioning hypervisor. We expect this advance to simplify virtualization and make it more easily accessible to customers as they refresh their computing infrastructure. As multi-core systems become more common, virtualization will no longer be viewed as an optional capability by customers.”

VMware ESX Server 3i is the new architectural foundation for VMware Infrastructure 3, a widely deployed virtualization software suite for optimizing and managing industry-standard IT environments. VMware customers will be able to easily implement the entire suite of VMware Infrastructure 3 products on top of this foundation, including VirtualCenter, VMotion, Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS), High Availability (HA) and VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB).

Wow, how quickly things change and come up in the world of IT service. I love seeing the evolution of <a href=http://www.stratavia.com>data center automation, especially when something like this comes out that’s going to allow us to boot right to a functioning hypervisor! This is certainly more interesting than some of the other automation tools I’ve seen as of late. IT automation was starting to look stagnant from my point of view but this changes that view.

This certainly sounds great but I’m curious to see just how many benefits can be reaped from virtualization in this manner. How if at all will this affect a company’s business software applications? Will it further help make things more reliable as a whole or will there be more patching required after this is implemented? One thing I do know for sure is that any network with something like this is going to process workflow very efficiently and it should greatly <a href=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-availability_cluster>improve application availability.
