Adobe AIR for Total Virtualization Management

Posted by Sravan | July 16, 2008 .

This is a larger step for Adobe AIR in entering “serious” applications. With the sudden outbreak and rising necessity for virtualization, several companies, big and small, are sweating to go virtual and also adapt their own technologies to work in the virtual environments. While VMWare and Microsoft are battling to provide virtualization management capabilities BlueBear enters the scene. The latter has a USP backed by Adobe AIR.

BlueBear LLC, a 2007 startup which takes pride in its “green” mentality, has announced the availability of Kodiak Beta. Kodiak (blue bear), said to be the world’s only platform-independent application for total virtualization management follows BlueBear’s Koala, which is claimed to be the world’s smallest virtualization-ready server. And Adobe AIR plays a large role in this new software.

Kodiak is deployable on Windows, Mac and Linux, provides native support for VMware and Xen servers, comes with a visual map user interface, and allows unlimited consoles. Not only is it free of cost, its soon to be shared SDK coupled with Adobe’s Flex IDE allows high extensibility for end-user customization.

Then what is the catch? Just that Kodiak Beta is currently invite only. So the only window open to know a little more about the software is their screenshots.

NOTE: BlueBear LLC is not be confused with Blue Bear LLC, which is (or was?) a different company that builds websites.
