Jonathon Schwartz today delivered his keynote address at Oracle Open World and during that presentation, seen in it’s entirety here . During the keynote he previewed the xVM Ops Center product that Sun is building to help companies manage their virtual and physical assets. The product will help companies Discover bare metal in their environments, provision operating systems to get up and running faster, monitor and manage the hardware and operating systems, and keep them up-to-date. The benefit for customers is that they will be able to manage their physical and virtual assets in a more cost effective and efficient manner allowing resources to focus on more high-value tasks.
Of course, Sun is committed to customer choice and is committed to supporting communities like libvirt. You can find out more about the libvirt commmunity here . Sun will use the open source community to help maximize innovation and customer choice. If you want more information about our open source plans and please see Openxvm.org here.
This is exciting times in the data center as virtualization matures and companies like Sun help customers find tools to help them manage their entire lifecycle. There will be more to come on this topic and a few previews in the next coming weeks.
