MAC OS on vSphere! Thanks to IDE support!

Thursday, June 18, 2009

One nice little feature added to ESX4 is IDE disk support for the VMs.  This of course allows us to now run all of our favorite VMs that previously only worked on VMware Workstation (That has long had IDE support).  For Chris Hahn, this means the MAC OS. Check out his screenshots below :



Why MAC OS? For starters, this could be an easy way to test how web applications function across platforms.  It would be VERY interesting to see a View Agent released for this too! :)  Whatever the reason, its a nice way to do some MAC testing on more powerful hardware that usually afforded to VMware Workstation VMs.
