virtualization … on software level npow oracle started its play in virtualization game. oracle released freeware – virtual ware so that you can run oracle producats as well asany other applications in vms. Oracle claiming that its vmware software is 3x faster than current players. What VMware – senior player in vm market going to release to win the field ? Microsoft also released vm in windows 2008 server … so ….. vmware has tough time as many big big players comming to market.
Anyway its very good move as now we can reduce risk data center space issues by virtulization.
