Are you Virtualized?

I spoke to a start-up (they will soon launch) CEO and CFO yesterday and everyone has Virtualization an Application Mobility on their lips. Loads of green talk and data center but the issues revolving around our current behavior patterns are more than just environment related. There are a lot of issues that affect our society and as an entrepreneur you need to really know and have something so close to your heart, that touches everyone's heart!

The big players in the virtualization world are VMware and Microsoft. Although I’m normally a big fan of Microsoft tools and technologies–I prefer the VMware tools when it comes to virtualization. Start with an installation of VMware Server and then load up one of the sample VMs available from the VMware Technology Network (for something small/simple try the browser appliance.)
