PHD Virtual seems to have finally found the right pace to compete in the crowded virtualization market.

The company is releasing new, significant updates for its flagship product much more frequently than in the last three years (esXpress 3.5 was released in June, 3.6 just one month after), and it’s investing to expand the product portfolio and the staff.

In early September in fact PHD Virtual announced that has doubled the R&D capacity and hired Vladimir Hrabrov, former R&D and Program Manager for Business Service Automation at HP.

Hrabrov, appointed as Vice President of Engineering, come from Novadigm where he worked for 10 years as Senior Software Architect before HP acquired it in April 2004.

At the same time PHD Virtual also promoted Alex Mittell, author of the products acquired from Xtravirt in October 2008, as its new Director of R&D.

The expanded team is already finalizing esXpress 4.0, which was demonstrated at VMworld 2009.
