I was hoping to stay with vmware since thats what my employer uses but it doesn't look like thats going to work well long term. Eventually I'm going to build a server or two, used to have a half dozen running a few years ago but my server room become a nursery. I was just starting to use vmware player at that time. Now that I'm looking to put back a lab a 'production' home network again I wanted to keep everything virtual. I'll have to start looking at other tech. Are there any others that have the management like vmware?

I haven't messed around with anything besides VMware Server and a bit with Virtualbox, so I'm probably not the best person to ask. Maybe this comparison helps a bit?

Doesn;t mention any managment capabilities. I'm using virtualbox now but the interface isn't that great, I have to to the host to see the consoles and everything. Looking for somehting that has a management page like vmware where I can do anything remotely.
looks though like the free ESX has just been renamed to vsphere. 3.5 is still 32bit, 4.0 is 64 bit only. I'll see if 3.5 will come up on my hardware at all and run that way.


host, pam, server, slackware, vmware
