VMware Introduces Free VMware Server
Posted on 6-Feb-2006 22:51 | Tags Filed under: News



VMware, Inc. is introducing VMware Server, a free new entry-level hosted virtualization product for Linux and Windows servers.

"Virtualization and VMware have become mainstream in the past year, and many customers have deployed thousands of VMware server environments across their enterprises. With VMware Server, we are ensuring that every company interested in, considering or evaluating server virtualization for the first time has access to the industry-leading virtualization technology," said Diane Greene, VMware President. "VMware Server makes it easy and compelling for companies new to virtualization to take the first step toward enterprise-wide virtual infrastructure."

VMware Server, the successor to VMware GSX Server, enables users to quickly provision new server capacity by partitioning a physical server into multiple virtual machines.

VMware Server is feature-packed, including support for any standard x86 hardware; support for a wide variety of Linux and Windows host operating systems, including 64-bit operating systems; support for a wide variety of Linux, NetWare, Solaris x86 and Windows guest operating systems, including 64-bit operating systems; support for Virtual SMP, enabling a single virtual machine to span multiple physical processors.

VMware Server supports 64-bit virtual machines and Intel Virtualization Technology, a set of Intel hardware platform enhancements specifically designed to enhance virtualization solutions.

By making virtualization technology available broadly and freely, first in the form of VMware Player which was made generally available in December 2005 and now in the form of VMware Server, VMware is providing the opportunity for users to experience the benefits of virtualization firsthand and for companies to broaden usage of virtualization to all corners of their enterprises.

VMware Server is an ideal starting point for users seeking to familiarize themselves with the concept of virtualization before progressing onto the enterprise-class suite of VMware virtual infrastructure products that includes ESX Server with Virtual SMP and VirtualCenter with VMotion technology for large-scale production server consolidation, business continuity and enterprise hosted desktop solutions.

With the introduction of VMware Server, Intel and VMware are launching a global marketing campaign to educate users on the value of virtualization on Intel platforms and to drive broader adoption of virtualization.

The VMware Server beta is available for immediate download. The product is expected to be generally available later in the first half of 2006. Support and subscription services for VMware Server will be available for purchase upon general availability.
