A Brief History of Virtualisation, now on Kindle


Minor quibble

I picked this up and read through it over xmas - it's a nice background overall but I have a quibble with the content.

It implies that VMware's x86 offering only uses their original Binary Translation method, and doesn't leverage the improvements in Intel/AMD processor technology thus making the other x86 offerings superior for doing so - this hasn't been true since ESX3.5 circa 2008, and hardware assisted virtualisation is now often the default.
