Documenting a virtualization project

Experiences in Virtualization

Introduction

Posted by martijnl on June 29, 2006

After using VMWare GSX Server since the time of it’s release the opportunities of virtualization for testing and development purposes were clear to us for some time. It was a visit to one of Cisco’s European datacenters that really opened our eyes to the stability and applicability of a Virtual Infrastructure for production use.

Learning of the upcoming betatest of VMWare Infrastructure 3 (then just known as VMWare ESX3 to succeed version 2.5) we jumped to the opportunity.

I must emphasize that we already had put in a reservation for the related hardware investment in the budget for this year which made this decision a whole lot easier. But more on the budget side in later posts.

    I saw that you used PowerConvert on this project was wondering if you used PowerRecon for your planning phase? If so what was your take on it?
