Microsoft moves into virtualization

Largest enterprise software launch


Microsoft
has entered the virtualization market in one of its largest enterprise software launches.

In Toronto, Chief Operating Officer, Kevin Turner, said the company developed its Windows Server 2008 software after witnessing how strong the demand was from the industry for virtualization tools. The software has been geared to take advantage of virtualization tools and could make a big difference to the market, he said.

The current virtuailzation market leader is VMware, which has 85 percent of the market. It could be bad news for Vmware in the long term, as Microsoft ties their applications to its operating system, which allows them to capture a better portion of the market. VMware has countered with agreements with HP, IBM, Dell, and Fujitsu Siemens Computers to distribute their servers with VMware software already installed.

Microsoft plans to sell its latest Windows Server product for about one-third less than what VMware's software costs. But customers will still need to spend a bit of time testing both software offerings before deciding which to use for their IT needs.
