VMware to further detail its Virtual Machine Interface at Linux Symposium 2006

Steve Herrod, Vice President of Technology Development at VMware, just remarked from its blog the company commitment in providing a standard virtualization interface for Linux kernel.

His intervention is timely: recently the online press underlined VMware and Xen developers contrasts on how to approach the hypervisor standardization, and how this is slowing down progress since more than one year.

In his post Mr. Herrod also announced more details about VMware vision for standardization, called Virtual Machine Interface (VMI), will be disclosed at upcoming Linux Symposium 2006, where Pratap Subrahmanyam, Principal Engineer at the company, will present a session title Transparent Paravirtualization for Linux.
