VMware Lab Manager future in question

There's a growing feeling that VMware Lab Manager will be replaced by vCloud Director. Find out why and get a full recap of this week's virtualization news in this podcast.

Many VMware Lab Manager features are in the new cloud management product, vCloud Director. Eventually, they all will be. And VMware Lab Manager hasn't had a major update in a very long time.

These facts are contributing to growing speculation that the days of VMware Lab Manager are numbered. After all, why would you need two products with the same feature set?

This edition of This Week in Virtualization covers the future of VMware Lab Manager and vCloud Director. There's also news on the Hyper-V R2 Service Pack 1 Release Candidate, which Microsoft issued this week, and the release of Veeam Backup and Replication 5.0.
