Xen Virtualisation - Who Is Using It In Production?
Later this year we are building a new server core and I'm going down the road of virtualisation, redundant core switches and a dual SAN with High Availability (Openfiler with DRBD).
So far my tests have all revolved around Linux Xen (which is proving to be very easy, stable and nice to setup). My problem, at the moment, is that my boss is having doubts about it and talking about just putting in standard, basic, servers :(
What I'm looking for is a list of schools, companies, etc that use it and are happy using it (some online documentation to back it up would be excellent).
I, personally, don't see the problem as the virtual clients will mostly be running Windows 2008 server - but I think his concerns are that I'm looking at something very much "non-standard" (he's worried that when BSF takes over I'll be kicked out or re-deployed elsewhere - not to mention the concerns of what would happen if I had an accident).
Assurances that the whole setup will be fully documented (with "noddy guides" and pictures too!!!) haven't completely satisfied him, so any help very much appreciated
