Just a small piece of info on the Citrix XenServer front this week:

VMLogix's LabManager software has been certified for use with Citrix XenServer. LabManager is an aptly-named package that allows administrators to configure and manage virtual lab environments. It supports Microsoft Virtual Server 2005, VMware, and now Citrix XenServer, as well as physical servers and virtual storage solutions.

VMLogix enables administrators, testers, and developers to create a library of virtual servers in each mode of deployment (build, test, production) using deltas from a base image. These configurations can then be shared among other teams, departments, or contractors.

This sounds pretty cool, and I'm going to download the trial and take a look at it. Anyone have an experience with VMLogix they'd care to share?

The really interesting thing that VMLogix does that VM Loab Manager doesn't is the build and test automation. They give you quite a few scripts and tools to automate the build, testing, and teardown of a virtual machine. You can add your own scripts as well. I saw this in their demo at iForum and Summit, and was very impressed. You can see a screen shot at this link -

While not everyone needs the level of sophistication this tool provides, for those that need a complete test and dev environment VMLogix is defintely worth considering. When I get time I am going to blog about their solution and do an interview with their product team.

Although I don't have any experience VMLogix LabManager, I have some with VMware Lab Manager. I still find it strange and confusing that those competing products have *almost* the same name (well, except for 1 space.. which is probable the catch "trade markwise").

I don't know which product was first with that name though (VMware Lab Manager was formerly known as Akimbi Slingshot, before the Akimbi acquisition in june 2006).

Hi,

Thank you for your comments around VMLogix LabManager. Like you pointed out, automation, advanced user/team management, advanced network configurations are a few of our key differentiators. Of course, the key point is that we offer all this and more and are hypervisor agnostic and support leading hypervisors from Citrix, Microsoft and VMware. 

You can learn a lot more about our product, including looking over product videos/screencasts, documents etc. by accessing our virtual portal here - http://www.vmlogix.com/Create-an-account/

You can also track our blog here - http://blog.vmlogix.com (it has detailed posts on automation, networking etc.)

Thanks,

Srihari Palangala, VMLogix
