VMM Is on Its Second Rev -- And It Hasn't Even Shipped Yet!

The second beta of Microsoft's Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) shipped a few days ago, and Microsoft says it is an utterly different product from beta 1.

VMM is a tool that helps track performance and manage virtual machines. And if Microsoft wants to keep pace with VMware, it better get products like VMM right.

In fact, I can't think of a company that has been so successful, despite being in Redmond's crosshairs. Well, maybe Google!

Does virtualization really represent a sea change, or is it just rehashed mainframe technology from the '70s? Let me know at [email protected].
