Sun Galaxy roadshow
This morning, I attended Sun Galaxy roadshow. Interesting presentations about new Opteron based Sun
servers (X2100, X400) and also some details about Sun Ultra 20 workstation and VMware
software. All presentations were well prepared and not pure marketing ;-) On the other hand, the
pure technical details (lahf and sahf AMD64 platform instructions on EM64T, see this article
for more details) were used as a pure
marketing tool ;-) But all in all very interesting morning.
I met Pavel Lisı again after a year approx.
After thinking about current position of VMware, Xen and other virtualizers, I wonder when x86
hardware producers implement the possibility to create virtual machines directly to the
. Imagine starting a completely new PC server you just bought:
No virtual machine defined. Please create one. Choose one of the following:
Single machine Wizard
Is it a dream only? No, this already works. Unfortunately not for x86/AMD64 :-( Why? When?
