It'll be tough to manage all virtualization architectures in one forum.
IMHO there should be one for each hypervisor in addition to a general one.

A start

OK, I'll start. I have been using VMWare Workstation on my Linux laptops since version 3. I am currently running the latest release candidate of version 7 on KUbuntu 7.10beta (I like to do beta testing). I also use ESX, ESXi, and GSX.

I work for a VMWare certified reseller and a MS Gold partner, so I have access to lots of software. We built a full virtual lab for testing all kinds of scenarios. It is also useful for demos.

I have used VirtualBox and Virtual PC (on Windows), but found that VMWare is much better. I really haven't had a need to try any of the other hypervisors like Xen or KVM. I am also a student, so I get a pretty fair discount on VMWare and the upgrades for my personal machines.

I monitor this forum through RSS feeds, so I will check periodically for updates and questions.

-Rick

Hi Folks -- as this is the official "Welcome Thread" to the Virt. Forum, I have moved a number of individual discussions & questions off onto their own threads.

Please keep this thread here, general, maybe with such comments about virtualization in general and what you think of this new forum (i.e. feedback specific to this sub-forum.)

If you have a specific question regarding your own virt. platform, please start a new thread of your own. Thanks, and enjoy!

Sasha

PS - If anyone whose post(s) I have moved, finds that their conversation is now out of context, of otherwise doesn't make sense, and you think we can help, please feel free to ask in-thread, or contact a moderator by clicking the REPORT button.

Well I for one am happy with a section for Virtualization. I never could get Xen to work on Fedora, so maybe now I'll get around to trying again. More often than not I'm either using Linux within VirtualBox or over an SSH connection.

Oracle VM

This is great. I have been working with Oracle VM which is based on Red Hat's implementation of Xen.

To clarify further in case anyone is having trouble locating their posts/threads after I moved them, you can locate all your posts/threads by clicking "Subscribed Threads" in the "My LQ" menu on the right side of any page.

Thank you.

My apology to anyone, (especially OralDeckard who inquired about this), who has experienced difficulty locating their posts.

Also, I left the titles of any moved threads pretty much the same as best I could, so if you go to the main "Virtualization Forum" threads listing, you can see all threads right there.

Best Regards,
Sasha

Talking hmmm... my first post?

my first post.... ooooo.... i am trying to get back into computers again since i have more or less left them off since i was in high school (class of '76). i did have an amiga 500 in 1990 and tried to do a little with that but... then i did gaming (nintendo) and pretty much left computers alone again until 2000 and a neighbor built one for me. windows 98 and i think a hard drive of 20gigs which i thought i could never fill. don't even remember the ram amount or the speed of the processor but hey... that was ancient history. i have rebuilt my computer a few times myself since then but it still did not make me anything more than a noob. i started playing world of warcraft in september of 2007 and yet getting tired of windows. i tried ubuntu 7.10 in late 2007 i think and although i couldn't get my brain to work well with ubuntu at the beginning i am now starting to understand it a lot more now. i actually stopped using ubuntu for a while since that first try and only recently (last 6 months) got my brain to be compatible with the linux systems. my first try to ubuntu was to get WoW working on a better system but i didn't do so well and that is why i stopped trying ubuntu. i started about 6 months ago with ubuntu again and kept at it and got WoW working. i reinstalled ubuntu quite a few times and each time i learned more and more. so now i want to continue learning. my computer now consists of an asus m3a78-em (which has some driver problems), phenom 9950 2.6 quad core, 8gb kingston, 9800gt nvidia, creative x-fi xtreme music, two 250gb sata western digital hds but i am only using one at the moment (and the rest i figure isn't needed to say yet). oh yeah... i'm running ubuntu 9.04 amd64 now too.

i like what i think virtualization is about but i am confused as to what it actually does and would be interested if someone could explain it to this "beginner" although given much time and i hope to move to expert... wouldn't that be nice =D
