(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20080708/AQTU138LOGO) VMware Lab Manager 3.0 gives users on-demand access to system configurations they need -- while leaving IT in administrative control -- all while achieving significant savings through reduced server, storage, and provisioning costs. The latest release of this product provides increased scalability, simplified administration and high availability for lab infrastructure. VMware Stage Manager solves the problem of server sprawl, configuration drift and repetitive system test in pre-production by running application environments as virtual machine configurations that can be easily transitioned through the stages of the release process. VMware Stage Manager reduces the risks associated with changes to production systems by enabling IT and application administrators to easily clone system configurations and maintain consistent virtual machine images throughout the release process, as needed, so customers can respond to changing business conditions faster.
