VMware acquired Dunes Technologies?

virtualization.info just received a news from a trusted source revealing VMware has acquired Dunes Technology.

If confirmed VMware achieved two goals: making another step towards virtual datacenter automation, given the great flexibility Dunes VS-O automation framework offers, and further enhancing VDI offering after Propero acquisition (Dunes offers a VDI solution called VD-O since one year).

The acquisition, assuming it’s true, is expected to be announced at VMworld.

Update: VMware just confirmed the acquisition with a press announcement during VMworld 2007 keynote.
