As most people have probably seen on Slashdot or Digg by now, we just released VMware Server 1.0. As promised, it is a free product and should run your virtual machines much faster than the earlier betas did.
(If you’re not sure what VMware Server is all about, please read my original post.)
VMware Server has already been deployed at several companies ever since beta 1. I’ve always found that amusing, given how young the product was at that stage (even though this is essentially GSX 4). However, my experience in talking to beta testers so far is that most people are pretty happy with the product, especially given the price. I am personally running it at home for my Linux development VMs and it has been working nicely.
My thanks go out to all the testers that have reported problems or who have given us feedback of any kind. As one of the developers on VMware Server, it has been nice hearing positive reports and stories :).
Some of us know how hard you worked on Server; I hope those that don’t appreciate it.
I’ve been using Server from a fairly early beta, and the only problems I have ever had were installation related. It became a permanent part of my working environment pretty soon afterwards.
Just installed the 1.0 version with no issues on the upgrade, and it definitely is noticeably snappier than the RC1 I was using before.
Rock solid, fast, free. You guys have done a great job!
Now can I pretty please have VMware Server Console for Mac OS X ?
