  • Server Virtualization

    Hey Folks - We need your help. We were hoping, we could gain from your experience with implementing server virtualization. When should we be using Red Hat Virtualization, Citrix Virtualization, Xen Virtualization, Microsoft Virtualization, Oracle Virtualization and VMWare. I will be very interested in learning from your first hand experince. I will also like to know, under what situations is one virtualization prefered over the other. - Thanks for your help

    Re: Server Virtualization

    the de facto standard these days seems VMWare ESX, which really is very resource efficient (only 90 megs of RAM taken, the rest is free for the VMs to use)

    and it also has quite a few additional goodies

      Re: Server Virtualization

      how much do you want to spend?

      that will play a roll when determining which virtualization route you take...

      M$ virtualization is free, besides the lics and the cals, and xen can be pretty cheap as well.

      we are using ESX right now. $1.2 million dollars, $333,000 of which is for vmotion licensing alone...

      i cannot comment on the other virtualization technologies, as i have not used them

        I have been working with VMWARE, Microsoft and XEN, and in overall VMWARE feels like it offers better performance. I must emphasize "Feels", because this has not been technical tested. It is just an impression.

          VMware. Period.

          Everyone else is significantly behind on the technology, especially Microsoft.

          If you're on a restrictive budget, unfortunately you may need to look elsewhere.
