It seems that the oust of Diane Greene is having big consequences. One of them is that VMware ESXi is now a free product. I see this like a direct attack to Microsoft’s attempt to get into the virtualization market. What does this mean? That there is little reason to choose Microsoft’s hypervisor when you can choose a more mature one that is now free.
Of course, hardware requirements for ESXi still make it hard to afford for small companies, but these are very good news in any case.
The hypervisors war is getting very hot!
