    VMWorld: IT professionals give their verdict on Microsoft virtualisation moves



    Microsoft's entry into the virtualisation supplier market will drive better products through increased competition, attendees at VMworld in Los Vegas said this week.

    "Competition usually breeds better products, but let us hope Microsoft does not come into the market and quash VMware by giving products away for free," said one end-user.

    Some attendees said they expect Microsoft to adopt "Guerilla tactics" by integrating its technology tightly into its server operating system in the guise of a value-added service.

    "Giving away razor blades and selling razors is a common tactic with Microsoft," said one end-user.

    "I would have expected Microsoft to have started doing virtualisation maybe a bit sooner, but everyone is doing it now," said one attendee.
