  • virtualization

    Greeting friends.

    Am the newest member of petri. I have read carefully the welcome information about how to use all forums.

    I know this is not the right place for my question but i hope i'll got the answer...

    My company now going to start training on virtualization i.e. ( Vmware and Microsoft virtual server) and we are free to join any bcoz my company has clients for both the the question is which technology should i choose........because its a ten day training by the Vmware and Microsoft expert and we have to choose only one.

    please tell me which tech. shoul i go for.

    Re: virtualization

    That is a big question. That is like trying to think should I go to law school or medical school.

    Each of us will tell that both products have multiple features ...

    But it all depends on what you want, what your requirements will be, and what you would like to do with virtualization.

    Sit down, work out a plan of what you would like. What you need (in regards to availability, backup, network, storage etc..... there is a huge list)

    Then see which one of the technologies will be suitable for your purposes.

    Both Platforms do virtualization.

    Once you know then you can see which platform will be more suitable for your needs, and then you can know what to go for.

    That does not mean that you cannot do both, but don't expect to know the product or how to design a virtualizaiotn solution after 10 days of training. It will take a lot longer than that....

    (oh and... why is the VMware training 10 days? from what I know the VCP course is only 5 days so what are the other 5 for?)
