I've got a couple of beefy Quad-Xeon, 12GB RAM machines running about 30
servers in total.
The main benefits are I can provision low-use servers without wasting
hardware and I can provision them quickly, typically less than 10 minutes
from deciding it's needed to having it available on the domain for use. They
are also easy to backup and move to another host in the event of a hardware
failure, although I've yet to have one.
Running VMWare GSX 3.

Just curious...


How many of you are now using either server virtualization or storage
virtualization (or both)?


If you are using it, what benefits have you seen?


If not, do you plan to use it anytime soon?


Again, just curious.
