VMware GSX not really meant for production? Sure it is!



I think this news is kind of confusing or atleast talks about a bit of confusion. Anyways as new customers and existing customers, my advice will be

  • VMware's GSX server is a great product, it's just getting free. It still remains a good solid product.
  • GSX (and then the later renamed Virtual Server) will remain for a lot of purposes like QA, Development, Testing.
  • ESX is superior than GSX as it runs closer on the bare metal, so if you expect better (or near HW ) performance, you know what to go for.
  • Sure Microsoft and Xensource are trying to catch up but to you your good and healthy GSX server in production is your concern. And moving to ESX from here is a recommended path anyways (I'd advice it even if VMware's GSX server wasn't being freed)
  • Don't forget that you have a World class virtualization product in house, no other product can replace it.
  • Please don't let any FUD bother you. If you didn't have it , it wasn't yours either.
  • Even if you continue to use the GSX, you'll have full support so don't worry!

Cheers and Virtualize right now!!!

Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
