This rev of System Center has a familiar MO: It can manage both physical and
virtual servers, something virtually every systems management vendor has told
me in the last six months. The Microsoft tool can also oversee ESX VMs.
VMware should take heed. I believe the company must adopt all its tools to
work across all major hypervisors -- and not just its own. If not, VMware could
ultimately become a marginal player. If it goes multiplatform, the sky is still
very much the only limit.
Does VMware need to support Hyper-V and Xen to survive? Business advice welcome
