Embotics delays Microsoft Hyper-V support

The customer is always right. At least until they go off maintenance. That's why Embotics – a maker of a virtual machine provisioning, capacity, and lifecycle management tool called V-Commander – has delayed support for Microsoft's Hyper-V hypervisor until later this year. V-Commander integrates with VMware's vCenter Server …

VMware's vSphere cleared for military spook servers

VMware's vSphere 4.0 stack has received its EAL4+ certification for use with military and intelligence services.

VMware revenues up 46%

VMware scales up vSphere virt, rejigs prices

Given the radical change in features, pricing, and packaging that VMware did when it kicked out the vSphere 4.0 server virtualization toolset - which is basically the ESX Server 4.0 hypervisor and its related vCenter management console - it is not reasonable to expect a huge amount of change fifteen months later as VMware revs …

VMware profits pinched in Q4

For all the talk about how server virtualization's day has finally come for the x64 server platform - and how the economic meltdown has finally given customers the impetus to go virtual with their iron - VMware couldn't grow both sales and profits in the final quarter of 2009. It is probably safe to blame Microsoft's Hyper-V …
