Yet another attempt at OS-Level Virtualization. Sun has been doing zones / containers for a while, without a hyper-visor - Parallels did this with Virtuozzo, and It was not impressive, It worked, but not without a lot of hassle and issues.

Oracle claims its built for the cloud, really? what inst these days?

Insightful and accurate comment, "what isn't these days?" :)
Now I'm gonna see what I can understand about this from that link. Thanks for sharing.

More companies are adopting the move into the cloud, its amazing how virtualization has transformed the adoption of service based computing. Many of you will recall the mid - late 90's which saw the emergence of ASP (Application Service Providers) - that lasted a while but died just as quickly.

Virtualization has provided many innovations which has made the adoption of "service based computing" or what is today called "Cloud computing" a reality - quick deployment, elasticity, pay for only what you use, and hardware to OS abstraction has been some of the innovation catalysts to make Cloud computing a reality.

I made a prediction about it: http://predictsthat.com/#?p=39096776

Nanotech memory - a reality!

"The advantages of memristors are that their read times are about 10 nanoseconds, with write and erase times of 0.1 nanosecond. Data stored in memristors lasts years, and you can read and write them about 1,000,000,000,000 times (HP is still counting) without data loss. In a nutshell, we're talking about increasing storage density by a factor of two, increasing speed by a factor of ten, and decreasing power consumption by a factor of ten, all at the same price point as flash memory is today."

Hmmm. I seem to remember my dual floppies spontaneously doing that back in 1992 when installing Windows 3.1.

Just great - now when you have application compatability problems how do you control them? If all the subsystems are embedded in the OS of the new Kindle what kind of compatibility can Silk have when ported to other systems. I know it sounds like I am a skeptic but really...

Yet another reason to give credit where deserved - Microsoft:

"This flurry of improvements is in addition to progress Hyper-V has been making against ESX in licenses issued. Hyper-V grew 62% last year compared to ESX's 21%" growth and Citrix's 25%, according to IDC. Separately, Gartner projects that by next year Hyper-V will account for 27% of the market, up from 11% two years ago. Within that projected 27%, Gartner says Microsoft will have captured 85% of all businesses with less than 1,000 employees that use virtual servers."

Yeah we've got a 1GB link between our 2 sites. Over 180KM as the crow flies so we've had to go async which has ruled out CSV for us (CE doesn't support CSV with async) but on a LUN per VM basis its working great. Just about to turn PoC to live environment so we'll see if it works the same real world!

I haven't used glusterFS what do you think of it? I've played with open filer - that was pretty neat for a free app.
