ZDNet is running the first head-to-head comparison review of an xVM product vs. a VMware product! Go check it out here. This review of xVM VirtualBox 1.6 vs. VMware Server 2.0 does a really good job of bringing out the core strengths of VirtualBox. Here are some good quotes:
- xVM VirtualBox has the clear advantage of being the only free personal/SMB virtualization product that runs on all the major computing platforms
- The software is also extremely light, weighing in at only a 22MB download
- setup is extremely easy
- we found VirtualBox xVM performance to be excellent
Great job VirtualBox team! I spent Saturday installing more operating systems inside VirtualBox at SuperHappyDevHouse. I showed it to a number of people and they were all really impressed. Several downloaded it and installed it right there. The more people that find out about this, the more fall in love with it.
Now, I can't wait for the xVM Server vs. VMware ESX Smackdown to start this Summer!
