oVirt is really a management web application for KVM, which is already included in the poll.

Virtualbox.

But only because I use it to try out things. In a production environment choices may be different.

It would be nice to see Citrix Xenserver listed here as an option. Everything you have to pay for in Vmware is free in Xenserver, including live migration. I will only vote for Xenserver!

Would members like to see "Citrix XenServer" broken out from Xen moving forward?

I would suggest so,.. because Xen (http://www.xenproject.org/) is a hypervisor, and xenserver (http://www.xenserver.org/) is a virtualization platform. There is a good explanation of the differences here: http://community.spiceworks.com/topi...nserver-vs-xcp

I've come to dislike VirtualBox for what I see as a poor decision made by the development team.
In order to back up VB machines one must export them or else face the situation where they will not boot as they are on a different disk drive to the one they were created upon.
This, to my mind, is unacceptable and pathetic. I hadn't realised people that brain-dead were allowed to develop software.

Cool SmartOS

VMware and family pretty much take the cake in this department. Although for my own purposes I I am liking SmartOS for leveraging all that Solaris goodness like ZFS, zones/container, DTrace, Crossbow, etc. in a true FOSS offering that's not beholden to Oracle.
