IBM Joins the Virtual Server Game

Wednesday, April 28, 2004  

IBM has decided to join the virtual server fun with its own "virtualization engine", essentially doing what VMWare is doing on a Power 5 processor. Although the product is not officially announced on IBM's site, it appears it will be released at the same time the Power 5 processor hits the market. Along with it will be new management and provisioning software. Now if IBM can stuff 2-4 Power 5 processors in a blade and get any kind of performance out of it, I'll be able to put just about my entire data center into 7U. I *like* that.
