In this edition of This Week in Virtualization, IT architect Rick Vanover and network engineer Kendrick Coleman discuss their own experiences with VMware ESXi. They say there's no easy way to migrate from ESX to ESXi, but the move to ESXi will be worth it for VMware and its customers.
In addition to the VMware ESXi discussion, this podcast also covers the surprising news that Dell and Hewlett-Packard will resell Oracle VM.Oracle, thanks to its Sun Microsystems acquisition, is a major hardware rival of both Dell and HP, and this news is just the latest example of the complicated vendor relationships that permeate the server virtualization market.
There is also news from our sister site, SearchDataBackup.com, about a new virtual machine backup product, Pancetera Unite.
