Chuck.... "The prevalence of a single, robust hypervisor model in the enterprise is the essential starting point..."

Sorry but the prevalence of a "single" anything is never good.

Interesting read, but I'm sure without your VMware hat you don't believe that statement. Choice and competition is everything!

BTW which widget are you using for your "Interesting books for the cognoscenti". Really like how it lays them out, though no sweat if you don't know... ;-)

Hi Nigel

My comment isn't as partisan as you might believe.

Diversity creates unneeded complexity. For example, I can't imagine trying to run a large Oracle cluster on mixed hypervisors. Choose one you like, and stick with it -- at least on a per sub-environment basis

The layout widget is built into TypePad. All I did was type in a title, and it did the rest.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
