Today VMware announced the beta release of a new service aimed at the SMB market making it easier for these companies to adopt and move to a virtualized server environment. This new offering is called ‘VMware Go’ and although currently in beta is predicted to go live in Q4 2009.
VMware Go will provide an easy to use web based front end to deploy ESXi which will ensure the process of installing ESXi is a straight forward and hassle free experience. This easy to use web interface will greatly assist even those with limited virtualization knowledge to get VMware ESXi up and running in no time.
