VMWare EXSi

VMWare takes a giant leap past Microsoft and Xen by providing EXSi as a free download.
I used VMWare server a lot I created a Load Balancing and a Clustering SQL server on a single Laptop. This was done for a usability test for ABN-AMRO.

But now with EXSi this takes a whole new level, this will lower the difficulty with baremetal restores (those are the one we hate do we? )

Download it at http://www.vmware.com/products/esxi/ remember to check if your server on the HCL list

Check it out!
