MS to simplify system management

Microsoft outlined plans to simplify systems management for virtual servers at its management summit in Seattle last week.

Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer outlined how Microsoft will support virtual server management when Longhorn, the next version of Windows, is launched in 2006.

Virtualisation allows users to run more than one operating system, as well as both 32-bit and 64-bit applications, on a single platform.

Ballmer also highlighted features of Visual Studio 2005, which is due this summer. He said it would allow developers to build applications that support the company's Dynamic Systems Initiative, which aims to let applications manage themselves.

Ballmer said, "With Visual Studio 2005, we deliver to all software developers the ability to encapsulate management model information into their applications from the point of creation, so the ability to sit there in the development tool, write the code and build in the management model at the same time becomes available."
