Project Horizon: VMware moves beyond virtualization

With Project Horizon, VMware wants to challenge Microsoft’s dominance in desktop computing. But it’s quite the departure for the virtualization leader.

Project Horizon, VMware’s forthcoming application delivery and management portal, marks the company’s biggest attempt yet to take down Windows-based computing.

Project Horizon will let users manage on-premise and Web-based applications, including the Zimbra, Mozy and SlideRocket services it has acquired over the past few years. But will enterprises embrace this model, or will Microsoft still rule? And how successfully will VMware expand beyond its virtualization focus?

Our hosts discuss these questions and more on this episode of This Week in Virtualization. In addition, this podcast features news on the latest Oracle-VMware licensing controversy, Microsoft’s interest in the Storage Management Initiative-Specification and more.
