HotLink, the startup that came out of stealth last year with a kind of über-visor for managing incompatible hypervisors all from the same console, is beefing up its integration with VMware's vCenter management console. Lynn LeBlanc and Richard Offer, the founders of FastScale Technology, a company that created some very clever …
been there done that..............
didn't Abiquo already do this ?
A starter kit with the SuperVisor server and the ability to manage five physical hosts running KVM, Hyper-V, or XenServer costs $25,000
You had me sold 'till the price. That's a lot of money considering you also need to buy vCentre too.
libvirt is a mature open source library that has done this for ages (well, since 2007 according to http://libvirt.org )
Could you be any more clueless about what this does and how it's different from Libvirt?
Leave these topics to real experts please (no you're not an expert just because you use Linux and use a silly penguin logo in your posts)
Perhaps instead of your silly ad hominem attack, you could explain the difference?
I'm just now updating a HotLink video on http://www.hotlink.com/technology/demo.html where you can see the difference between the HotLink’s platform transformation approach and the traditional overlay management approach (e.g. Abiquo, SCVMM ...etc.). In a nut shell, with HotLink VMware vCenter is extended to NATIVELY manage other hypervisors and NO other management is required - vCenter is the only console. We are not dependent on VMware or other APIs and have attacked this bottoms up through our agnostic data model. I'd like to invite the readers to my webinar this coming Wednesday http://www.hotlink.com/news/eventview.php?id=243 where I will talk more about this very topic.
