More Virtualisation Companies

I’ve updated my links with some more Virtualisation companies I’ve come across by scanning the blogs. It does seem like the majority of “startups” (without know their lineage) are working in the VDI space. I will try to arrange them by server or VDI type at some point.

The consensus of opinion does seem to be that VDI is the area to focus on. In my experience it is a much more complicated beast than server virtualisation. Interesting because almost the reverse of the physical scenario where servers tended to be more complex and unique and desktops were simpler and more uniform. The addition of the virtualisation factor to the equation has changed it all.

On a technical note, I found the following in my ESXi messages file which accounts for the delay in starting up my system after I removed the datastore at the back end (because I couldn’t do it from vSphere client).

It must have a memory of that datastore in the path given, which I will attempt to remove.
