VMware offers virtualisation for SMBs

14 Jan 2010

Today’s introduction of the ‘VMware Go’ web-based service marks the company’s goal of making it easier for SMBs with limited resources get started with virtualisation.

The free service provides SMBs with an easier way to virtualise their applications by automating the installation and configuration of the VMware ESXi hypervisor. The service has already created more than 3,000 virtual machines for more than 1,000 beta testers.

“With VMware Go we are eliminating the skill barrier for getting started with virtualisation, so companies who are concerned about not having the IT resources or expertise, especially SMBs, can now more quickly and easily enjoy the many benefits of virtualisation,” said Dan Chu, Vice President of Emerging Products and Markets for VMware.
