vSphere (ESX 4) Launch set for April 21:

Searchvirtualization is reporting the launch of the next game changing revolution in Virtualization by VMware is scheduled for April 21.

I am very excited about the features in this next release and have been involved with the beta of the product, but not commented due to NDA rules.

The article seems to indicate many are not aware of the new features. If you are in that boat I can't stress the importance of attending VMworld and your local VMware User Groups to keep up on all the news.

This new release is guaranteed to rock the virtualization industry!
