Brian Madden says: “4 ways Microsoft is screwing the desktop virtualization industry”

with one comment

Brian Madden has published a good read on Microsofts Licensing policies for virtual desktops environments and how he says, Microsoft is screwing us with four specific topics.

  1. No SPLA for Windows VDA
  2. Hosting providers aren’t allowed  to let two customers share the same server or storage
  3. Arcane rules about on-premise devices
  4. Microsoft won’t disclose how OnLive licensing works

As a message of protest, Brian is not attending the annual MVP meeting in Redmond.

vSphere Edition to host desktops

without comments

Two days ago VMware announced the new version of vSphere which also comes with a new licensing model which is based on the vRAM. This is the first cloud licensing model but in case of VMware View you’ll still be able to license your desktops per concurrent connection. VMware also has a new SKU for a vSphere Edition especially for hosting desktops. As others already have written great articles about that today I’ll not start a new post but refer you to one. Check Think Loud for a summary.
