Howdy - I'm Larry Grothaus, a product manager on the System Center team. To start out let me point out that there are two "Larry's" on the System Center business, with Larry Orecklin being the other.  Larry "O" is the general manager over System Center product management and virtualization marketing and you can see a post from him a little further down the blog.

Regarding this post, with all the buzz around server virtualization these days, thought those of you following System Center happenings might be interested in this related post by Rakesh on the Virtual Machine Manager team.  He talks about the next version of System Center VMM (referred to as "VNext", currently) and the ability to manage not only Hyper-V and Virtual Server, but also VMware environments.

For background on why the team made the decision to manage VMware and what that really means, check out the post:

Thanks and enjoy - Larry
