When I was at OSU, using VMware was a no-brainer because their
academic discounts were so steep. Now that I'm back in the private
sector, the costs for VMware are (by comparison) staggering.
10g Ethernet is in the realm of the financially feasible. It suddenly
becomes a tough choice to decide between VMware or 10gE. If you can't
have both, which will provide the best infrastructure investment for
the business needs?
