"In the fall, VMware will unveil two new server versions of its
software, one for corporations and one for application service
providers (ASPs) who host others' Internet operations on their own
servers, marketing director Reza Malekzadeh said in an interview at
the PC Expo show. VMware's current products enable multiple
operating systems to run on a single Intel computer at the same
time but are only for desktop use."
"...VMware got much of its start because of the booming
popularity of Linux. The software allowed people to simultaneously
run Linux and Windows on the same machine. "The Linux craze took
off at the right time for us, but we are not really a Linux
company," Malekzadeh said."
"...The server push will take advantage of VMware's ability
to protect against crashes, Malekzadeh said. By assigning a
separate "virtual machine" to each task, one task failing won't
affect the other tasks. For example, a database program running in
a copy of Windows 2000 that crashes won't disrupt a separate copy
of Linux running Web server software."
