VMware offers virtualisation on a server platter

Embedded hypervisor looks to make virtualisation standard

VMware hopes to make virtualisation software as common in datacentres as ketchup is on hamburgers, via a thin hypervisor that IBM, HP and Dell all plan to embed in their x86 servers.

Building VMware's new ESX Server 3i into systems should make it easier to set up virtual servers, software engineer at a financial services firm that he asked not be named, Joe Whorton, said. Systems could just be stacked and racked,Whorton said at VMware's user conference in San Francisco.

But infrastructure director at steel maker SSAB Svenskt Stal AB in Stockholm, Thomas Andersson, said that although hardware vendors included many features in their systems, few of them were actually used.

XenSource also announced an embedded hypervisor this month, but no server vendors have publicly committed to use it thus far.
