Database as a service from VMware

Alastair Aitken 30 August 2011 0

VMware has announced VMware vFabric Data Director, an enterprise database as a service (DBaaS). The first database supported by VMware vFabric Data Director is VMware vFabric Postgres 9.0 (vPostgres) which is PostgreSQL compatible.

VMware vFabric Data Director requires VMware vSphere 5.0 Enterprise or Enterprise Plus licenses and one instance of vCenter Server 5.0 Foundation or Standard. It can be used on VMware Cloud Foundry.

VMware vFabric Data Director will be available for download in Q3 2011 and will be free for non-production use.

As a contract developer and manager I’ve worked in a wide range of enterprises in a variety of countries where I’ve encountered everything from great work, awful work, bizarre work, all the way down to quasi-legal work. If you think that you recognise your own organisation within my articles then you’re undoubtedly wrong, where you work isn’t that unique.
