After much hoopla and fanfare, VMware spent a month and a half without issuing a SKU for it’s new small-to-mid-sized business edition of VI3.5. Happily, and with thanks to a couple of vendors who took the time to email me, I’ve learned that the new SKUs are out. While the pricing has been available since just after the announcement, the lack of a SKU means that no quotes or orders could be placed. I don’t know if the kits are actually shipping, but that at least gives me something to follow-up on in a subsequent post.
This is good news to the many SMBs that stand to benefit from virtualization, and good for VMware as having a real product to order is better than vaporware in the growing SMB battle between VMware, Citrix, and Virtual Iron.
