Today (April 22) VMware announced 1st quarter earnings. The company
did quite well and surpassed analyst expectations. Overall the company
did $438 million in revenue for the quarter. What really gets me
excited about this is the opportunity for the 14,000 partners out there
selling VMware solutions. Every day I go to customers with partners or
go to partner sites to do training. Whenever I’m with a partner they
always want to know what’s in it for them. Why should they be selling
VMware when they’re also Citrix and Microsoft partners and both of
those companies have virtualization solutions. Here’s my take….
Last year for Workstation 6.0, one of the features we added was a
plugin for Visual Studio 2005 that allows developers to debug a project
(native and managed C/C++, C#, or Visual Basic) inside of a Windows
virtual machine (specifically Windows 98, Windows 2000, and later).
All of you Windows developers know how much of a pain it is to support
multiple versions of Windows, but this tool is designed to make that
process much, much easier. The Visual Studio Integrated Debugger (VSID
in short) plugin utilizes Visual Studio remote debugging technology to
allow you to debug a project inside of a VM as if you were debugging on
your host computer with the click of one button.
Recently ESX and VirtualCenter (VC) patches were released which –
among others – fix several security issues. These issues are detailed
in a new advisory, VMSA-2008-0007, and in the updated advisories VMSA-2008-0002.1, 0003.1, 0004.1, 0006.1. Please take some time out of your busy schedule to review your deployments and update where appropriate.
Blogger John Tuffin has made an entry about his experiments managing VMware Server 2.0 Beta with PowerShell. To summarize, you can manage VMware Server with PowerShell, in much the same way you manage VMware ESX.
