Currently we don't use any virtualization but as we 'should' soon be receiving funds to overhaul our network and so virtualization is something that we're thinking about.
I'm not quite sure where to start or which products to look at. We currently have some Citrix kit so i might take a look at XenServer but of course VMWare and Hyper-V are also options.
As always budget is a factor so the lower cost the better. What are peoples opinions of the different products on offer, anyone used more than one? Also is anyone using the free versions on their networks and what are the drawbacks of the free versions?
Our current setup has about 7 servers all of them run server 2003 and a couple of them are Citrix boxes. We also have a Sun Storage 7110 SAN device that i imagine can be used for storing virtual disks.
What other details should i be taking into consideration while thinking about this direction.
Any thoughts appreciated.
