IBM to Ship VMware Software with Some Large Servers

Martin O'Donnell told us that IBM announced it is partnering with VMware to ship virtual machine software with certain x360 and z800 servers. This is intended to provide customers with a way to consolidate servers on to larger, more powerful machines. This will also allow the IBM servers to simultaneously operate under multiple operating systems.

An article on this subject published in The Wall Street Journal today says, "{IBM} said that a machine equipped with the software will be able to simulate up to 20 individual computers running either Windows or Linux."
