VMware crazy…

Having been a committed Hyper-V & VirtualPC user, I have crossed the rubicon to go back to my VMware roots over the last week. I’ve been building a SharePoint Server 2010 farm (domain controller, SQL, SharePoint app server and 2 x web front end servers) and started on VMware Server, but now have an ESXi 4.1 server running (10GB memory, Q6600 quad core processor) and am very happy with performance and management tools, without the overhead of Server 2008. I could have installed the Hyper-V server, but my client’s commitment to VMware and the demands of the market encouraged me to get up and running with ESXi.

I also pushed the boat out to buy a copy of VMware Workstation, to save the need to have a different pc virtualisation tool (though VMware Player does allow the creation of VMs it doesn’t allow a virtual ESXi server).

Next step, an OpenFiler VM providing iSCSI storage
