The other data center product that VMware announced in the virtualization conference is vShield Zones. It is a virtual appliance for security which allows data center engineers to create logical zones with different levels of security based on groupings of virtual machines.
VMware executives explained that "instead of having to cordon off a group of Internet-facing servers with their own settings in a demilitarized zone, vShield allows a DMZ to be created among VMs that may be co-hosted on the same physical server with internal applications".
Using vShield, the enterprise users can segment applications based on their security needs and run them in a shared environment, covered by their zone's protections. The product will be released within the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2009. A beta release however is set to be released within a month or two.
