You may remember Serli as the company that contributed application versioning to GlassFish 3.1. This time around, their engineers (mainly Fabien Leroy) are at it again with their latest contribution: a VMware plugin for the upcoming GlassFish virtualization feature in addition to the OVM, VirtualBox and KVM plugins that the GlassFish team has been developing.
On this recent Serli Team blog entry, Fabien discusses the PaaS and dynamic provisioning objectives of the upcoming GlassFish 4.0 and in particular the underlying IaaS Management Service and how it deals with pools of (virtualized) servers. This is where virtualization plugins and their templates come into the picture.
Serli's VMWare plugin targets VMware ESX and ESXi machines and a video linked from the blog entry is available to see it in action.
