InMage is the first company supporting Oracle VM

With a surprising move in November 2007 Oracle announced its own Xen-based hypervisor based: Oracle VM.

Along with it Oracle also clarified its support policy about virtualization, completely compromising the relation with VMware (despite the latter attempts to save all salvable).

The move wasn’t not exactly welcome by some analysts and customers.

Months after the announcement a security firm focused on continuous data protection (CDP) backup, InMage, is the first announcing its support for Oracle VM.

InMage is part of the Oracle PartnerNetwork since a while, so it’s easy to understand how easily they recognized the opportunity that Oracle lock-in offers.
