VMware Betas Free VMware Go

Web-based service that automates ESXi installation and configuration

VMware started chasing small and mid-size customers Monday with a beta of VMware Go, a free web-based service that automates ESXi installation and configuration so first-time customers can get started with virtualization.

It’s supposed to “dramatically” simplify the process of virtualizing their applications down to a few mouse clicks.


Dan Chu presented at SYS-CON's 5th Virtualization Conference & Expo

VMware’s VP of emerging products and markets Dan Chu says, “We want SMBs who may be sitting on the fence to realize all the benefits of virtualization without burdening their limited IT resources.”

VMware claims ESXi is the industry’s most widely deployed hypervisor, with hundreds of thousands of users worldwide. It’s free too.

VMware developed Go in partnership with Shavlik Technologies, a member of its Technology Alliance Partner Program.

Go is expected to become generally available as a free service in 2010.
