Live xVM Server Demo

Here's a sneak peak at the xVM Server user interface.  Here I'm sitting in Sun's Menlo Park, California campus with RedMonk's Cote showing him how I can manage a virtualized server in Broomfield, Colorado.

Note that the UI you see in the video is served by an embedded web server inside the xVM Server software.  You can also choose to use xVM Ops Center to manage many virtaulized (or non-virtualized!) servers centrally.  With that option you'll see a similar user interface, but with even more management options.

Note that we've just started our early access program for xVM Server.  If you're interested, you can read more here.

Comments:

I'm \*still\* waiting for Sun to get back to us for a preview download so that I can get use to the interface and such before we deploy.
Regards,

@Edward Sorry about that. We got way more requests than we expected. I do see your name in the queue, so we did get it. Will follow up with the guys here to make sure you get a response.

How will xVM server integrate with AVS?

For example, if you provision ZFS backed storage for your Linux and Windows guests, what is involved in connecting the IO stream to Availability Suite for replication to a remote server?

That seems like a major win for Sun products leveraging each other. i.e. Don't use VMproduct W, use xVM with AVS and disaster recovery becomes super easy.
