[THIN] Re: OT - VM sizing for testing

I think the main point is that virtualization does not change resource
requirements. That is often missed in the "irrational exuberance" around
consolidation. Hardware virtualization requires the same exact resources as
the corresponding physical servers.

This starts to change with things like OS virtualization, but in the
hypervisor world you can share hardware, but you still need to make
available the same resources....

Evan and Mike:

Thank you.  Exactly the type of commentary I was looking for.

You at least help me establish my 'normal' - then I can find my
extreme (the large) and most likely my VDI (the purpously small).

All of your comments are helping me validate my thinking.

Thanks for the contributions!
(Joe and Steve too)
