If I used/bought VMWare, than my money would be gone so I would not be able
to buy the Blades, so I would run VMWare on my current DL360's...

So if you used Vmware, would you just buy less Blades and use VMWare on
those less # of blades, or use VMWare on the DL360's?

I guess I should explain more, if we were to go with Blades in this
decision, it would just be that we would use the Blades to REPLACE the
DL360's, and then we would use the DL360's for different applications, so
it's not like I would get 4-6 Blades on top of what I already have for
Citrix...

Given the choice, I'd rather have more physical units then more virtual
units on less physical machines.  But this thinking would go along with you
actually needing more capacity over cheaper DR/test environments. If you
have good capacity and room to grow with your current setup, then perhaps
VMWare would be better because it will give you cheaper DR/test
environments.

Just wanted to get a discussion going on a decision that I am trying to
tackle in terms of MF...  Right now our environment looks like this: seven
MF servers running MF XP FR3 on Windows 2k Server sp4, 2 NFuse servers also
with CSG installed on both running Win2k Advanced Server sp4, and all
servers are Compaq DL 360's (some G1, some G2)  with dual 1ghz processors
and 2gb RAM, we have a SAN now (HP EVA 5000) but are not currently housing
any MF data on it.=3D20 =3D20 Ideally we would be able = to install MF on
some new blade servers, house the data on the SAN, and utilize VMWARE as
well.  That is not going to happen here, we just don't have the money for
it.  However, we may have the money for either one OR the other.  All things
considered in terms of MF in particular, which one would you rather have in
your data center and why?  I know they do different things, but when you
match those things up against one another, which one has more
advantages?=3D20 =3D20 /jL =3D20
