Despite the company has been acquired by VMware, Dunes had time to release a new product: VS-O Lifecycle 1.0.
The new solution is based on well-known automation framework Dunes offers as VS-O flagship product, and leverages part of its capabilities in following features:
- Automated virtual machines provisioning and decommissioning
- Provisioning moderation and delegation
- Assisted provisioning
- Virtual machines lifecycle tracking
- Self-service web portal
Considering VMware acquisition probably this product will never be released to the general public. For this reason the virtualization.info Virtualization Industry Roadmap will not be updated as usual.
It’s interesting to note that another Dunes product, the one addressing VDI scenarios called VD-O, seems disappeared immediately after acquisition announcement.
