Within the virtualization world, VMware (NYSE: VMW) can hardly claim to be more friendly to open source than competing platforms such as KVM and Xen. Nonetheless, the company has signed on as a leading member of the Open Source Software Institute (OSSI), a trade organization dedicated to promoting open source solutions in government. Is this a sign of renewed commitment to open source by VMware, or a more mercenary move by the company to protect its slice of the open source market? Here are some thoughts.

The Interior Department is working to give employees access to IT resources anywhere, anytime with any device enabled by cloud computing through DOI’s data center consolidation initiative. “I view cloud computing as helping us meet the needs of our dispersed workforce,” said Interior CIO Bernard Mazer.

This support also includes access to the business applications associated with contract, financial and human resource management systems...
