Q&A on xVM Ops Center


A new Q&A with Sun’s Steve Wilson on xVM Ops Center tells us a lot more about the product’s first commercial release, which is expected to ship in the next few weeks. xVM Ops Center 1.0 is focused on datacenter automation and includes features such as:
* Server discovery and inventory management
* Server firmware analysis and provisioning
* Bare metal Server provisioning
* Patch management
* Monitoring
“Sun in fact is able to provide the certified hardware (both servers and storage), two different virtualization platforms (both xVM Server and Solaris Containers), a management solution (Ops Center), and even a VDI connection broker (Sun VDI). On top of that Sun has a partnership in place with Microsoft to grant interoperability and high performance for Windows virtual machines.” Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
