Hey Folks - We need your help. We were hoping, we could gain from your experience with implementing server virtualization. When should we be using Red Hat Virtualization, Citrix Virtualization, Xen Virtualization, Microsoft Virtualization, Oracle Virtualization and VMWare. I will be very interested in learning from your first hand experince. I will also like to know, under what situations is one virtualization prefered over the other. - Thanks for your help
These are all viable solutions, so it depends on how you want to utilize virtualization. For most of these solutions, there are ~3 things that will separate them:
1. What OS do you want to run in the VM? Is it supported?
2. What platform do you want to use as the *host* OS? Linux, Windows, etc?
3. What capabilities do you need for your VM's? Failover, etc?
Some of these use different levels/types of hypervisor technology as well. Wiki here.
