I just noticed on the Platespin website that they put up a press release to announce the acquisition by Novell. After Dunes getting bought by VMWare and Vizioncore becoming part of Quest this is yet another major consolidation in the virtualization “tooling” space.
The press release can be found here: http://www.platespin.com/corporate/newsdetails.aspx?id=269. There is also an FAQ page available on http://www.platespin.com/novell/.
I am also curious what this means for still independant vendors like Leostream.
