Sun xVM Family News

A couple of things came to my attention when I got back today - news items I'd missed during the three-day weekend. Evidently, my downtime window was longer than most people's. Clearly I need to virtualize myself.

The first bit of news is that Paul Murphy at Zdnet did a cost-comparison between SunRays, which use Sun xVM VDI software, and a 'Wintel' setup. He found that SunRays provide cost savings both in the short term as well as the long term - not only do they require much less power and support than desktops, they're also less expensive to buy and set up.

I also discovered that another sun employee, who goes by the pseudonym 'TheFatBloke' on blogs.sun.com, just started a blog called VirtualBox Buzz. His aim is to follow news and blogs that relate to Sun xVM VirtualBox. It's only a few days old, but it looks promising.
