Some of the core engineers from VMWare left to start a new company, Digital Support Technology over a year ago.
The Co-founder & CEO, Haiyang Wang, is a friend, so I'm posting about this seed-stage, under the radar company since they just released their first but uneventful press release, "Digital Support Technology Releases New Computer Support Automation Utility."
They are bringing virtualization technology that VMWare applied to the enterprise to the desktop PC/Mac, and specifically in the area of automated PC support. I've seen their demo and have to say that it's quite cool.
They are backed by Min Zhu, Co-founder of WebEx, and Feng Deng, Co-founder of NetScreen, which was acquired by Juniper Networks.
