Announcing Availability of VMware Go™ — The Quick and Easy On-Ramp to Virtualization

Today, VMware announced the general availability of VMware Go™, a free web-based service that lets users set up a virtual machine environment with just a few mouse clicks. We at VMware are very excited about this release, which directly addresses the skill barrier for starting down the virtualization path, especially for small businesses who may have limited IT resources. VMware Go guides users through the installation and configuration of the industry-leading hypervisor, VMware ESXi, and then enables them to set up and manage virtual machines running server application workloads. Since our public Beta of VMware Go was released in Sept, 2009, we’ve had over 1,000 users successfully set up an ESXi server and a total of 3,000+ VMs running on those servers.

How it works —Virtualization in Three Simple Steps:

  1. Initial ESXi server setup
    • Unique web-browser interface and intuitive wizard guides and accelerates installation and setup process
    • Built in hardware compatibility check automates the process of selecting physical server environments
  2. Virtual machine creation
    • Leverage existing physical server configuration, install a prebuilt virtual appliance, or start with a new clean virtual machine.
  3. Manage ESXi servers and virtual machines
    • Centralized management interface simplifies changes to a virtual environment.
    • Monitor virtual machines for basic performance and resource utilization.
    • Scan and update virtual machines from a central console.
