This is pretty cool. Watch the 3 1/2 minute video from the link below.

Memory compression – This brings more efficiency out of the hardware. Since memory is normally the bottleneck on VM’s with this new technology they can insert themselves between the virtual machine and the RAM and compress some of the pages before they go to swap. Up to 25% more VM’s can run on the same amount of memory. They also introduced storage I/O control for cloud solutions for storage.

This kind of innovation is why VMware stays the leader and Citrix, Microsoft and others try to keep up:)

    This is cool too on vSphere 4.1.

    With the VMware vSphere 4.1 release there are lots of new features. One of the features that caught my eye is the ability for ESX/ESXi servers to “join” a Windows Active Directory (AD) domain. An ESX server can be a member server in AD. That means that you can then login to that ESX host using your Windows AD username and password. This applies when connecting to the server using the vSphere Client, going to the console, or connecting via SSH. This is also a nice security function because instead of logging on locally as “root”, now each user can login as themselves and that entry will be made in the associated security logs.

    Now that's a hot feature.

    You could do that on Hyper-V from day 1 icon_lol.gif

    I got a fortune cookie that said "Outlook not so good" and I thought to myself "Yeah...but Microsoft sells it anyway."

    Of course, it was easy to leave that code in there along with everything else to maintain the eleventeen terabyte* footprint of a basic Hyper-V install. icon_wink.gif
