This Friday Forbes unveiled the upcoming launch of vCloud Express, a VMware initiative to accelerate the adoption of vSphere a cloud computing platform.
Now it’s the eWEEK’s turn to ruin another VMworld surprise: VMware Go, a free web management service for ESXi.
The Web-based service automates the installation and configuration of VMware’s freely downloadable ESXi hypervisor, VMware ESXi.
VMware Go will enable SMB customers to “fly through the ESXi setup process with just a few mouse clicks,” Bogomil Balkansky, VMware’s vice president of product marketing for servers, told eWEEK.
VMware Go will be made available as a beta offering on Aug. 31, 2009 to customers at a special Web. It is scheduled to become generally available in Q4 2009, Balkansky said.
The special web site eWEEK is talking about is http://www.vmware.com/go/vmware-go/ but it’s not live yet.
It will be tomorrow as soon as VMware announces the product.
