From VMware killers to Sith Lords: The top virtualization tweets

The virtualization world had plenty to say this week about TechEd, VMware vs. Hyper-V and mobile computing. A little bird told us – the Twitter bird.

Twitter is like a virtual coffee shop: It’s where all conversation are taking place these days, even among virtualization...

users. As a matter of fact, these folks are some pretty active tweeters, and they’ve got plenty to say about virtualization.

While the Hyper-V vs. VMware debate waged on in the Twittersphere, Microsoft TechEd and the International Cloud Expo generated comments on everything from migrating VMs to coffee breaks.

Here are some of our favorite tweets from the past week:

@davidmdavis: I'm in the virtualization snack down session at #msteched with @mattmcspirit - product mgr for MS Virt and he is also a VCP - cool !
How is that possible? Can someone be a Sith and a Jedi at the same time?

@SkuTruger: There is no allegiance in tech. Tons of iPads and iPhones at #teched
I bet they are just waiting for Windows RT tablets and Windows Phone 8….

@isramueller: We just prayed to the Demo God to make all the demos work on the virtualization session! @TechEd_NA #msteched #twitterarmy
Ah, but half the fun of attending these shows is watching the demos fail and the look of panic that washes over the presenter’s face.

@mjdeblok: Just finished a lab that lets you boot #Server2012 off of iSCSI, I am seriously impressed! #vmware killer right here! #server8 #hyperv 
Everyone's quick to dub a VMware killer, but only time will tell if Windows Server 2012 actually can slay the VMware dragon. One thing is for certain, however, it will take a lot more than booting off of iSCSI to topple VMware.

@DonKirkham: Happiness is finding out Windows 8 supports Hyper-V. Reality is finding out your computer is too old to allow Hyper-V in Win 8. #realitysux
A pity. But if that’s the biggest problem you face, you’re doing alright. Keep on keepin’ on.

@johnsreid: "@knottyrope: Hyper v or VMware? What would you choose and why?" There's only one way to find out... FIIIIIGHT!
Let’s just hope the Hyper-V-VMware fight has different judges than the Pacquiao-Bradley fight.

Hyper-V isn't there yet. Make it so you don't have to babysit it and we'll talk.

Fight? Really?

Hyper-V, with 2012 server, now a real threat to VMWare (as if it wasnt already)..

Hyper-V 2012 beats VMware across the board. Been testing since beta and there are so many new features in Hyper-V that it puts VMware to shame. VMware has been coasting, screwing their customers with repeated price increases and now getting their butts handed to them.
