VMWare ESX 3i may leave VARs asking “What Now?”

by Harley Stagner on January 25, 2008

My latest article is up on SearchSystemsChannel.com. It deals with how VARs should proceed in the virtualization market now that server virtualization software is becoming easier to implement (thanks to products like ESX 3i). From the article:

Well, it’s official. VMware Server ESX 3i was released. Vendors like Dell, Fujitsu, Seimens, HP, IBM and NEC will start shipping servers with ESX 3i pre-installed very soon, making configuration easier and the need for virtualization software installation nonexistent. Service providers who want to stay competitive in the server virtualization services market will have to find ways to distinguish themselves. Toward that goal, there’s fertile ground in virtualization security and business consulting.”
