VMware vSphere to be first “Virtual Datacenter Operating System”

April 21, 2009 by Brian Wolff
VMware has finally released vSphere, the long-awaited overhaul of its core virtualization platform designed to aggregate the virtual resources in the data center into one centrally managed computing pool.

VMware continues to push the private cloud in its hopes that IT centers will build highly virtualized, fault-tolerant, self-service data centers that exist within the firewall for the benefit of the company’s users.  A future upgrade will allow private clouds to connect to commercial cloud services such as those provided by BlueLock.

According to Jon Brodkin of NetworkWorld
, “Compared to VMware Infrastructure 3, vSphere will double the processors available to VMs, more than double the network interface cards available to VMs, quadruple memory, triple network throughput, and double maximum I/O operations per second more than 200,000.”

BlueLock will be hosting a product preview this Thursday 4/23 in collaboration with the Indianapolis VMware User Group.  For more information regarding the event and to register, click here.

BlueLock is a vCloud hosting partner with VMware.
