Aloha !

So.. is anyone interested in spending some time teaching an old geek some new bits ? I have been reading a little on VM and i have a few instances where i think it could be useful for us. Thing is, with my schedule there is no way i have time to just sit and read up on this and expiriment and learn it on my own non existant "spare time". Looking for someone to volunteer a few hours with us (www.HawaiianHope.org) and help me understand this better, possibly help me convert over a box or 2

any takers ?

Well, here are the questions I ask myself:

What would I feel comfortable selling and deploying in a business other than my own that would depend on it to work all day every day?

Will I be able to reach someone when things don't go as planned and don't have all the answers?

What are the benefits of using a cost vs. open source solution? Usually you get what you pay for.

So far, I've felt that Vmware, Citrix and Microsoft provide the best answers to these questions. However in a lab environment or just playing around at home, I'm sure Xen, KVM, Virtualbox, etc. do just fine!

Welp, CentOS 6 works fine, seems there are different integration drivers for RHEL/CentOS 5 versus 6. SLES is fully supported. Interestingly enough, if you LInux is CLI only, the integration drivers for shutdown, etc work pretty well even in Debian/Ubuntu...but yes, not as clean as VMWare...but oh so much cheaper and Microsoft is committed to making it better. 

So I'm not saying replace VMWare with Hyper-V, just consider it, especially if you're primarily Windoze.

To be honest I'm not too fond of hyper-v since it doesn't truly support linux. I think MS recognizes that inviting linux users to play might lead to system instability. To be honest, I've been really happy with Vmware. Their licensing fees are reasonable and you can run hybrid environments (MS/NIX) on the same stand alone hardware without much effort!

On licensing for Windows Server, you really want to consider the Data Center edition since that allows you to shoe horn as many server instances onto a single physical server as will fit. This license works for both Hyper-V and VMWare. Windows Server 8 will follow and make setting up RemoteFX connections dramatically easier.
