Novell Acquire Platespin


As noted here and here, they’ve done it – lets hope they don’t stuff it up – Platespin have a good roadmap in my book – particularly around virtual DR/BC with their Forge product.

Novell had, and to some extent still do have very good technical products but they just make such a mess of integrating them all and making it easy to deploy and support which is one of the reasons MS beat them in the server wars…. the virtualization wars are the current battleground!
