After a development period of ten months, Virtual Iron updates today its virtualization platform to version 4.5.
The upgrade introduces a key feature for customers with high-security requirements, the role-based access control, a long overdue capability, the internal network switches (aka switches not binded to physical NICs), and the support for Windows Server 2008.
Along with the new features, Virtual Iron 4.5 comes with a new packaging, as the company seems to have renamed the Enterprise Edition in Extended Enterprise Edition.
No chances to the Free Edition which is still capped as follow:
- Up to 4 virtual servers
- Up to 1 virtual CPU
- Local disk storage only
- No VLAN
- Novell SLES 10 kernel & drivers
- Online community support only
