VMware to become the next Novell?

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

OK. I admit it the ONLY reason for this blogpost title is get you to pay attention. I don’t really mean that at all. But now I’ve suckered you into reading this thing let me explain. I’ve written an article for TechTarget which is all about my take on VMware’s recent alliance with Novell....

ESX 4.0 Update 2 (in)Compatibility with Cisco Nexus 1000V Virtual Ethernet Module

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

VMware View 4.5 speculation put to bed

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

It’s come to my attention that some venerable commentors believe the good ship VMware View 4.5 is trouble, and taking in water. It’s my firm belief that the ship is steady as she goes… Don’t believe me?  Look I know when the GA is but I can’t say because I’m gagged (AKA NDA’d) by...
