Vmware 2008; VMware has extended Virtual Infrastructure into a Virtual Datacenter Operating System
The virtual datacenter OS addresses customers’ needs for flexibility, speed, resiliency and efficiency by transforming the datacenter into an “internal cloud” – an elastic, shared, self- managing and self-healing utility that can federate with external clouds of computing capacity freeing IT from the constraints of static hardware-mapped applications.
VmDOS (Back to DOS days) delivers the virtual datacenter OS through the following essential components:
Application vServices guarantee the appropriate levels of availability, security and scalability to all applications independent of hardware and location.
Infrastructure vServices subtract, aggregate and allocate on-premise servers, storage and network for maximum infrastructure efficiency.
Cloud vServices federate the on-premise infrastructure with third party cloud infrastructure.
Management vServices allow you to proactively manage the virtual datacenter OS and the applications running on it.
All I can say is WOW!!!
