LiquidVM September 25, 2007

Posted by newyorkscot in SOA / Virtualization.

I saw Guy Churchward, VP Engineering at BEA, give an interesting keynote speech (including a Shakespearean intro) on BEA’s new LiquidVM product at BEA World in San Francisco the other week. Guy runs BEA’s product strategy and development for technology in the virtualization/utility computing, event driven architectures (real-time and complex event processing), portals and JVM (JRockit) domains.

LiquidVM is yet to be released as a GA product — but it is essentially JRockit with various extensions that allows application to be run in a virtualized environment on the Hypervisor of the host machine (ie without the OS). The benefit is improved performance and utilization, better compression of workload (e.g. supporting massively more market data feeds in the data center), and cost reduction.

The keynote is now available here, and whitepaper here.
