I think it boils down to "it depends"

by jmgarvin In reply to Which virtualization prod ...

I personally like VMware for a number of reasons, but at the same time I can say I also like Xen.

I like how you can "import" server images and the smallish footprint of Xen. However, the robustness and swiss army knife ideal of VMware keeps me coming back...

I think it boils down to:
What do you need the virtualization product to do?

I've never worked with Virtual PC, so I can't comment...

Virtualization Across Products

by nc-ws-itadmin In reply to I think it boils down to ...

funny that most hypervisor forms run on a nix' based OS as a classical host OS or console. Vmware is nice, ESX however needs to have almost proprietary hardware in order to install. The others are nice to sit on top of other host OS's. OpenVZ is pretty nice if you run different linux os's (after you install a primary OS) Given time I think it will be alright. Virtual PC (M$) is okay, but not nearly as customizable as I would like. VMware just cuts the rest down a bit with it's wide variety of products. Too bad they can't cut their price or have an open source per say to help those who can't afford 1k+ subscriptions for a year.

Reliability = as long as it's nix' based
Dependability = all about even running as a hypervisor
Cost = see ya vmware, I got to sell plasma for a few months before I can talk to you...

then again... you build a better lock, someone obsesses until they crack it open. Corporations are greedy enough, as our government leads; why don't we just give these softwares to people like subsidized housing projects. Code hungry college kids would love to learn...

I agree,

by Jaqui In reply to I think it boils down to ...

it really depends on what you need from the virtualisation technology as to which best serves your needs.

personally, a simple chroot system meets my needs perfectly.
I don't need an entire virtual system.

<a href=""><b>cheap prom dresses</b></a> Lindsey Wixson's Cinderella moment: How teenage supermodel got to wear the couture dress of her dreams for prom <a href=""><b>prom dresses</b></a>
Wearing a couture gown to your prom is beyond the wildest dreams of even the most pampered teen. <a href=""><b>prom dresses 2011</b></a>But for 17-year-old model-of-the-moment Lindsey Wixson all it took was a passing comment to make her Cinderella moment happen. <a href=""><b>grad dresses</b></a>
When a fashion blogger quizzed Wixson last autumn about <a href=""><b>2011 prom dresses</b></a> which designer she wanted to wear to her prom she replied: <a href="b>cocktail">"><b>cocktail dresses</b></a> 'Jason Wu,' adding: 'Oh my god, my friends would be, like, "how much did that cost? What?" Like freaking out.' <a href=""><b>plus size prom dresse</b></a>
Having heard that that the gap-toothed teenager had been coveting one of his dresses for her big night, designer Jason Wu - known as Michelle Obama's go-to man for glamorous gowns - decided to step in and create her a bespoke cobalt blue frock for the event, which took place last Saturday. <a href=""><b>plus size prom dresse 2011</b></a>
Teaming her one shoulder dress with pearl-coloured heels, <a href=""><b>cheap prom dresses 2011</b></a> a white and blue floral corsage and a flapper-inspired clutch, Miss Wixson, <a href=""><b>cheap prom dresses </b></a> spent the night partying with her ex-classmates (because her modelling career has taken off so spectacularly Wixson is no longer enrolled in high school). <a href=""><b>cheap short prom dresses</b></a>
Now, while her school mates have been cramming for exams, planning for college and buying their dresses at the local shopping mall, <a href=""><b>short prom dresses</b></a> Miss Wixson has been living the life of a supermodel. <a href=""><b>long prom dresses</b></a>
