Hi all,

Maybe its slightly ot, what virtual machine that better, I'm trying to build
entry level vm, only with dual core with 2GB memory, no SAN, only have 2-3
virtual servers. I thought Xen that comes with opensuse or SLES is good
enough, but then I see vmware esx-i come with free and well known vendor,
also with very small requirement (cmiiw). Have anyone of this list members
have run vm (anykind) for real live servers? Would you share about
performance, managebility, etc ?

If you'll be running just linux, the paravirtual performance from Xen
can't be beated by VMware, VirtualBox is nice for testing, but not for
production, because the VMs die when you close the application.
