What!!! Just about one hour after I posting “Virtualization WAR…” I received some feedback about the fact that the Virtualization Team removed the post!!! and that post no longer existed… WHAT!!! After testing it my-self I found out that in fact the post was removed from Virtualization Team Blog.
What a heck!!! I waited, waited, and here it’s the Post again BUT with a new SOFT version of the facts…
What happened??!!! Perhaps too many strong words…
Nah.... One of the things that change was due the fact that Jeff forgot about Windows SP2... But even after that the results are:
-VMware ESXi 3.5 patch footprint alone (3.7 GB) is still 7% greater than Hyper-V Server 2008 RTM (using the 2.6 GB number VMware quoted), all its patches and Service Pack 2 COMBINED.
But Wait!!! There's more... Read the new version of Virtualization WAR UPDATE 1 (Hopefully we’ll not need to wait until SP1, eheheh…)
