HP to offer management console for VMware ESXi?

Exactly one month ago, HP announced a new product called ProLiant Virtual Console (PVC) able to manage a Citrix XenServer edition that comes without XenCenter.

The product is a part of an initiative called ProLiant iVirtualization, is now including VMware and soon Microsoft (look at the bottom of the announcement).

At the moment the project¬† involves VMware only in the sense that ESXi can be pre-installed in new ProLiant servers, but the lightweight hypervisor comes without VirtualCenter, so it’s possible that HP may want to offer a PVC for VMware ESXi (and Microsoft Hyper-V) in the coming months.
