VMWare Server

Wednesday 9th November, 2005
I got pinged today by an IT Manager who's considering consolidating his infrastructure onto 2 large intel boxes running VMWare.

Instead of dedicated hardware for domain controllers, file/print, domino etc. with varying resource usage; he'd like to pool them all together on 2 VMware hosting servers and balance resources between the virtual machines appropriately.

This is all good in theory and it's been seen in demonstration. But what's this like in the real world? I can't help him, not been there myself, have any readers done this? Any experiences of running DC, file/print and Domino under different virtual servers all on one physical machine.

Any comments welcomed?
