    [other] Re: ESXi vs. VMWare Server (Is ESXi right for me?)

    I would also encourage you to try RHEL and KVM, though I would avoid Xen. Xen is not even available in RHEL6... KVM is the newer hypervisor of choice (for most).

    KVM and libvirt on RHEL is pretty...

    [other] Re: ESXi vs. VMWare Server (Is ESXi right for me?)

    Just to clarify - what likely expired was ESXi. You need to provide that with a license, but they give you free serial numbers for that.
    If you've deployed vCenter, then you would need a non-free...

    No, that's not true. I sell and design VMware at my job. You probably bought a couple sockets of vSphere, which would including licensing for additional features and a vCenter Agent.

    What did you buy for $900? The vSphere Client is free. ESXi is free as well.

    ChrisKhoo - thank you very much for posting this! I've been pulling out my hair for three days trying to figure this problem out on Fedora 12. Your solution works for me too.

    Thanks!

    Citrix is quite far from being free.

    If you want to present linux desktop(s), then VNC is one easy choice. TightVNC, for example, can do this:

    Hi there. Can you elaborate on what exactly you mean by "clustering" in this setup? This is most certainly not VMware clustering.

    You're seeing the two disks because these RAID controllers use what most people call "fakeraid" to present the RAID volumes to the OS. Fakeraid relies on software to perform the RAID operations......

    VMware Server 2 is a bad choice. Hyper-V is better, but that doesn't mean it's the BEST choice. Consider these:

    3. And then Hyper-V...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: VMware Server, best way to access RAID storage? SCSI passthrough?

    Hi there,
    I missed the fact that you're using whiteboxes... one possible problem would be compatibility with ESXi. Unlike Linux or Windows, there is basically nothing you can do to resolve...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: VMware Server, best way to access RAID storage? SCSI passthrough?

    Absolutely option #2. VMware Server is quite slow, and offers particularly poor i/o performance. ESXi is a better choice. You can simply export the storage using NFS to the ESXi host.
