Are You Serious? (Sun Partnering with Microsoft)

,----[ Quote ]
| The good news is everyone paid attention. The bad news is it spawned a lot of
| questions - which I thought I'd answer here.
|
| The announcement was this: Microsoft will be supporting Project Virginia,
| Sun's soon-to-be-announced hypervisor platform - meaning we can consolidate
| and manage Windows (alongside Linux and Solaris).

Virtualization: Linux's killer app

,----[ Quote ]
| Think about it. Even Microsoft supports running Linux on its Virtual
| Server product. Why would it do that? Wouldn't an OS partitioning
| technology, such as that used by OpenVz or Sun Solaris, be more in
| keeping with the kind of homogeneous environments that Microsoft
| would like to see? Why would Microsoft invest its resources to
| support a virtual machine technology that can only open the
| door to Linux in the datacenter?

| The fact that so many areas of IT are affected by virtualisation is

| computer resource from the underlying physical hardware and
| demonstrates this is a strategic issue with a broad impact
| that has to be considered at the highest levels of IT management.
